Germany to give away 1.3 billion leftover AstraZeneca doses: Health Minister

Berlin/UNI/Sputnik: Germany will hand over 1.3 billion AstraZeneca vaccine doses to the COVAX shot-sharing mechanism, Health Minister Jens Spahn said.

"We have a vested interest in getting the entire world vaccinated. Because this pandemic will be truly over once the virus is under control everywhere," he said in an interview to the RND news network.

Vaccines that were ordered by Germany but never claimed will be passed on to COVAX aid recipients.

Germany will also give up its share of Johnson & Johnson shots in favour of other EU nations.
