translated from Spanish: González García: «We have more than 51 million doses insured»

On Tuesday, the Minister of Health of the Nation, Ginés González García, said that the coronavirus vaccination campaign «is taking place in a timely way» and confirmed that Argentina has assured 51 million doses of coronavirus vaccines. These are contracts signed with Russia (Sputnik V), England (Oxford-AstraZeneca) and the UN (COVAX). By leading a survey at Posadas Hospital to apply the second dose of the Sputnik V vaccine to health personnel, the national official asked not to focus on the specific dates and numbers of each vaccine because there are «problems around the world.» Everyone knows the inconveniences around the world to access the vaccine and vaccinate, and so far we have not had any of these inconveniences, quite the contrary, we continue to access the vaccine according to the contracts we have signed and we have insured more than 51 million doses,» the minister said during a press conference at Posadas Hospital.

In addition, it stated that it is «a matter of hours» for the National Food, Food and Medical Technology Administration (ANMAT) to approve the use of Sputnik V in over 60 years.
