Monday 28 December 2020

TEHRAN (IRNA) — Iran’s Red Crescent Society (IRCS) said it is planning to take delivery of a batch of 150,000 coronavirus vaccines produced by Pfizer Inc.

Karim Hemmati, the head of IRCS, told IRNA on Monday that the Pfizer vaccines have been donated by a charity group of Iranian people living abroad. He said that the donation has been made in cooperation with the Ministry of Health.

According to the official, Iran needs some 19 to 20 mln doses of coronavirus vaccines, one million of which will be imported by the Red Crescent Society: “We will make every effort to import the one million coronavirus vaccines from reputable sources”, adding that the vaccines will come from one of the East Asian countries, but will definitely be approved by the Iranian Food and Drug Administration.
