Vietnam to get one million doses of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine weekly from July 2021
22 June 2021 -

One million doses of British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca's (LON:AZN) COVID-19 vaccine will be transferred to Vietnam weekly starting next month, Reuters news agency reported on Tuesday, citing Vietnam state media.

The Vietnam News Agency reported that Vietnam's order of 30 million doses will be fulfilled within 2021. However, the report did not state which country the AstraZeneca vaccine would come from.

Vietnam, which has so far received about 4.4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines, has relied heavily on the AstraZeneca vaccine for its inoculation programme, which started in March 2021.

The country's vaccines have come via donations, the COVAX vaccine sharing scheme and government procurements, Reuters added.
