GENEVA, Could 3 (Reuters) – Moderna will provide 34
million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine this yr and Sweden has
donated 1 million AstraZeneca photographs to the worldwide COVAX
programme, a small enhance because it struggles to get shares to
inoculate the world’s poorest individuals.
The advance buy contract agreed with Moderna is for up
to 500 million doses, however the roll out will solely begin within the
fourth quarter, with 34 million doses accessible this yr, the
GAVI vaccine alliance stated on Monday.
