Government to donate over 1 million vaccines to developing countries

The Government plans to donate between one and two million surplus vaccines to developing countries.

Health Minister Stephen Donnelly is seeking Cabinet approval to donate one million vaccines – and potentially more after a review of pre-purchasing agreements.

The donations will be made through the COVAX system.

Separate work is underway to give surplus stocks of AstraZeneca currently in Ireland to African countries.
