On Wednesday April 14, the country received 33,600 doses of Johnson & Johnson’s unique vaccine.
The process of vaccination of citizens against covid-19 continues, with the gradual coverage of additional population groups, in accordance with the priorities of the National Committee (Εθνικής Επιτροπής Εμβολιασμών).
Greece received the first 33,600 doses of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine. In addition, another 1.3 million doses of vaccine are expected to be delivered from this company by June. The company has confirmed that it intends to supply the EU with 55 million doses of its vaccine, as stipulated in the contract, by the end of June.
However, as announced, the company will postpone the delivery of its Covid-19 vaccine to the European Union, as it is currently studying cases of very rare thromboembolism in vaccinated people in collaboration with European health services.
Meanwhile, other vaccine manufacturers continue to supply. Greece expects 1,550,000 doses of the drug in May and 1,700,000 in June from Pfizer and in accordance with its supply plan.
AstraZeneca is expected to supply around 450,000 vaccines (April, May and June), while Moderna has said it will ship 100,000 doses of the coronavirus drug to the country at the moment.
