COVID-19: Portugal to donate 400 thousand doses of Pfizer vaccine to Armenia

STEPANAKERT, DECEMBER 14, ARTSAKHPRESS-ARMENPRESS: According to the statement, the first delivery under this arrangement will be 400 thousand vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech, from Portugal to Armenia.

“Each new wave of the COVID pandemic increases the urgency to step up the vaccination rate. This is no different with the newest variant, Omicron. It is only the vaccination that can save us all. And we are talking about our Eastern Partner countries, where the vaccination average rate is only 28%. So it is high time to help them to speed up the vaccination rate and get everybody fully vaccinated”, the Commissioner said.
