Malaysia Donates Over 600000 Doses Of AstraZeneca Vaccines To Bangladesh And Laos

The government has agreed to provide 559,200 doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to Bangladesh and 283,400 doses to Laos in order to guarantee that nations in need have fair access to the COVID-19 vaccine supply.

According to Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, just 20% of Bangladesh's population and 24% of Laos' population were fully vaccinated against the virus as of today.

He said that both nations would get their supplies today (Dec 7) and tomorrow (Dec 8).

Khairy further reassured that, despite the donations, the government maintained adequate vaccine supply for adult and adolescent vaccination programmes, along with booster doses for eligible individuals.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) hopes that the donation will assist both governments in their attempt to curb the COVID-19 pandemic and boost vaccination rates in their respective countries.

The Malaysian government, through MOH and Wisma Putra (Foreign Affairs Ministry) will continue to identify and assist countries that have recorded low vaccination rates through the provision of COVID-19 vaccine donations," he said in a statement here.

According to Khairy, Malaysia previously received 2,913,790 vaccine doses from four countries: Japan, the United States of America, China, and the United Kingdom.

The contribution had helped increase the rate of vaccination coverage in the country, and now, Malaysia hopes to do the same to other countries in need," he added.
