On 30 October, 620,000 doses of Moderna vaccines were delivered to Armenia, donated by Norway under the Team Europe Initiative using the support of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
“Considering the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Armenia, and the need to increase the vaccination rates, we see the vaccine delivery as very timely,” said EU Ambassador to Armenia Andrea Wiktorin. “We hope that the large variety of vaccines available for Armenian people will ensure higher rates of vaccination. Vaccines are the tool to fight against, mitigate and stop COVID-19 in Armenia.”
Norway is a Participating State in the Union Civil Protection Mechanism and hence acts under the Team Europe Initiative, joining the efforts with EU institutions and EU Member States.
