Germany will ship large quantities of the AstraZeneca vaccine to five countries in the coming days.
Afghanistan will receive 213,600 doses, Ethiopia – 271,200 doses, Sudan – 357,600 doses, Tajikistan – 100,800 doses and Uzbekistan – 355,200 doses, a spokesman for the German federal government has said.
Recipient countries are reported to be in dire need of the drug. According to the WHO, the need for vaccines is particularly high in these countries. They will now be able to use this vaccine directly in their vaccination programs.
