The vaccine revolution

During the past week, the Minister of Health of the Nation, Carla Vizzotti, announced the signing of a contract for 24 million doses with Sinopharm, from which it is expected that Argentina will receive some fourteen million vaccines during July.

For the month that begins on Thursday, before the new agreement with the Chinese laboratory, the following items were planned and contracted:

* Three million doses of Oxford / AstraZeneca, with the active substance manufactured at mAbxience in Garín and finished in Albuquerque and Mexico. In June, 4,060,000 of those vaccines came and most likely a similar or even greater number will come in July.

* Two million doses of Sputnik V. Every month that amount or even more has come.

* One million Sputnik V’s finished in Marcelo Figueiras’ Richmond laboratory. These vaccines depend on the approval of the quality control of the Gamaleya Institute, although the logic is that the approval be given before the end of July.

* Four million doses of Sinopharm.

This estimate adds up to around 10 million doses, but an additional 4 million of the drug were signed from the Chinese laboratory, which is estimated to start arriving early next month.
