Latvia has provided third world countries like Benin with COVID vaccinations, according to a report by the NHS.
Of these vaccines, Vaxzevria accounted for the highest number – 452,400 doses.
Out of this number, Benin received 80,000 vaccination doses. Other countries that received this generous bounty were Egypt (115000 doses), Kenya (55,200), Albania (30,000), 30,000 for Moldova as well as Vietnam which received 30,000 doses.
In addition to the Comirnaty vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech and the 5 000 doses of Nuvaxivid donated to the Oxford University, Latvia has also provided 492 000 doses of the Janssen vaccine to the COVAX mechanism.
With these doses from Latvia, Benin can look to inoculate its population as far as possible.
