Morocco is set to receive 4.2 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines, from three different manufacturers, in the coming days.
In addition to the 2 million Sinopharm doses set to arrive on March 30, Medias24, citing “informed sources,” reports on the delivery of additional 2.2 million vaccines in the near future.
Morocco ordered 1 million doses of the Russian-manufactured Sputnik V vaccine following the country’s authorization earlier in March. An additional shipment of 1.2 million COVAX vaccines (Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine produced in the organization’s South Korean facilities) is due to arrive in Morocco in the coming days.
The COVAX vaccines will be delivered as part of the global initiative fighting for a fairer distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. As part of its first round of vaccine allocation, COVAX will deliver, free of charge, 237 million doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine globally. The shipment of 1.2 million doses is a part of the total of 1,608,000 doses allocated to Morocco. Source: Morocco To Receive 4.2 Million COVID-19 Vaccines In Coming Days
