Latvia to donate thousands of AstraZeneca vaccines to other countries

Latvia will donate 165,600 doses of the manufacturer AstraZeneca vaccines against Covid-19 to five countries, Health Minister Daniels Pavļuts (Development/For!) said at the press briefing after the government meeting on July 6.

He said that the same vaccines have also been donated by Latvia's neighbours, Lithuania and Estonia, and Latvia has decided to donate the vaccines to Georgia, Moldova, Albania, Montenegro and Kenya.

Pavļuts explained that the stocks of vaccines are large and that further supplies are expected. Currently, the first doses of AstraZeneca are not used up before they expire, so the government is sure that the vaccines will be sufficient and that the number of doses can be donated.
