Sweden plans to donate one million doses of AstraZeneca vaccines to India


Sweden plans to donate one million doses of AstraZeneca vaccines to India via UN-supported COVAX, an initiative designed to give countries access to coronavirus vaccines regardless of their wealth.

“We see how the epidemic is spreading all over the world. People are dying, poverty is spreading, and children are not yet back to school,” the Scandinavian Minister for International Development Cooperation Per Olson Friede said Monday on Swedish channel SVT.

“We need to do everything we can to confront and combat this epidemic around the world.”

The donation will not have any effect on the startup in Sweden that has decided to manage

Shots for people 65 and over.

The country’s vaccination coordinator Richard Bergstrom said there are enough backup vaccines Swedes can abandon, adding, “That’s just a million … We actually have 4 or 5 million more Astra Zeneca vaccine that we can share later.”
