Brazil awaiting two million vaccine doses from India
Brasilia: The Brazilian government said on Thursday that a shipment of two million doses of the British AstraZeneca-Oxford Covid-19 vaccine was finally set to arrive in the country from India.
The delivery on Friday would be a much-needed boost to Brazil's vaccination programme.
"The two million doses of AstraZeneca should arrive in Brazil on Friday in the late afternoon," the ministry of health said in a statement.
The doses were originally set to arrive in Brazil last week.
