Muscat: Oman received a new shipment of 86,400 doses of the “AstraZeneca” vaccine against Covid-19, through the global “COVAX” initiative.

The COVAX is a global initiative, co-led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) and the World Health Organization, which works with government agencies and  manufacturers to accelerate the development, production and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines around the world.

To date, one billion doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine have been released for supply to more than 170 countries and accounts for approximately two-thirds of COVAX supply to date.

Dr.Ahmed bin Mohammed al Saeedi, Ministry of Health, said, “In line with the national strategy for the purchase and distribution of COVID-19 vaccine, we are pleased to receive the new bath of COVID-19 vaccine AstraZeneca via the COVAX initiative. The delivery of this important shipment is part of a series of arrivals to continue the vaccination campaign. We are delighted to see positive outcomes as we continue to make COVID-19 vaccines available to the public.”

Sameh Elfangary, Country President for GCC and Pakistan, AstraZeneca, said: “I was delighted to see the arrivals of further doses of OVID-19 vaccine AstraZeneca to Muscat. This is wonderful news for the people of Oman as vaccines remain the safest, most cost-effective protection against COVID-19 and are a powerful tool to address the pandemic and save lives around the world. On behalf of AstraZeneca, i would like to thank our partners at COVAX for making this possible. This milestone further demonstrates the value of governments, industry and others working together to fight against the pandemic.”
