On 3 September, Armenia received a donation of 27 500 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines from the EU member state, Lithuania. The transportation of the vaccine cargo was undertaken through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
“The donation by Lithuania and activation of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism is a very good example of Team Europe spirit, which embodies cooperation of the EU Member States’ Embassies, the EU Delegation to Armenia and the Armenian authorities,” said Jan Plešinger from the EU Delegation to Armenia. “…We hope it will contribute to the fight against the COVID-19 infection that is again spreading across Armenia.”
The vaccines were delivered to the National Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
