Sinovac ships first batch of COVID-19 vaccines to COVAX

Sinovac began shipping its first batch of inactivated COVID-19 vaccines to the COVAX project on Sunday, according to the official WeChat account of the Chinese pharmaceutical company.

The 567,600 doses of COVID-19 vaccines, purchased by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), are scheduled to arrive in Algiers, the capital of Algeria on Monday, to facilitate equitable and accessible distribution of COVID-19 vaccines globally.

The goal of the COVAX Facility is to help address the acute phase of the global pandemic by the end of 2021 by providing rapid, fair and equitable access to safe and effective vaccines for all participating countries and territories regardless of income level, said the UNICEF in July while signing supply agreement for Sinovac COVID-19 vaccines.
