Even though the AstraZeneca vaccine got a green light from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) on Friday, only about half of the contracted supplies will be imported to Slovakia in February.
This stems from the schedules of the adjusted supplies of this vaccine, provided to the Sme daily by the Health Ministry.
Slovakia originally ordered 3.6 million vaccines from AstraZeneca. In January, the pharmaceutical company informed the European Union that it would not be able to provide as many vaccines as they ordered, due to problems with the production of the vaccine in the Belgian and Dutch plants of the company.
Half of the expected amount
