The first batch of 91,200 doses of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccines arrived in the Dominican Republic on Tuesday morning.
The vaccines are purchased through the COVAX mechanism or Global Access Fund for COVID-19 Vaccines for its acronym in English, of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Early, the Ministry of Public Health reported that minister Daniel Rivera is set to receive the shipment at Las Americas International Airport of the Americas.
