To date, more than 9.2 million doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine have been delivered to Malaysia through direct supply, COVAX, and donations from other countries, in support of the country’s vaccination programme, it said in a statement today.

“AstraZeneca is committed to our role of delivering vaccine doses that reduce hospitalisations and save lives. Given the emergence of Omicron and the dynamic challenges presented by the virus, we will continue to support the government and the people throughout the changing course of the pandemic,” said Dr Sanjeev Panchal, Country President, AstraZeneca Malaysia.

AstraZeneca has supplied over 2.5 billion doses of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca to over 170 countries.
