Pakistan to receive 45 million doses of Indian COVID-19 vaccines

Pakistan is likely to receive 45 million Indian manufactured doses of COVID-19 vaccine in March.

This was reported by National Health Service (NHS) Secretary Amir Ashraf Khawaja while briefing the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

He said that the doses would be received under an agreement with Vaccine alliance Gavi.

Gavi is a public-private global health partnership with the goal of increasing access to immunisation in poor countries. 

Pakistan will get free doses of India-made Oxford-AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine, which would give cover to 20 per cent of the population of the country. 

Till now, India has supplied 464.29 lakh made-in-India Covid vaccines to 47 countries.

All of India’s neighbors, barring Pakistan, have been supplied with vaccines by New Delhi.
