Mexico donating AstraZeneca vaccines to TT

Trinidad and Tobago is one of five countries that will receive a donation of AstraZeneca vaccines from Mexico this week, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard announced on Tuesday.

Mexico received a total of 50,288,115 doses of vaccines from six developers, including Russia’s Sputnik V.

“We have donated vaccines to Belize, Bolivia and Paraguay. This week we will also send doses to Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago,” Ebrard said at a press conference.

The donation, he said, will consist of doses of the country’s stock of AstraZeneca vaccine, which is produced jointly by Mexico and Argentina.

The Minister did not give any further information on when the vaccines will be sent and how many are involved.
