United Nations officials announced today, Thursday, that the Syrian government has received the first shipment of Covid-19 vaccines through the global Kovacs initiative, which includes nearly 200,000 doses of the "AstraZeneca" vaccine.

A joint statement issued by the United Nations Children's Fund "UNICEF", the World Health Organization and the Global Alliance for Vaccines "Jaffe" said that the shipment "is very necessary and comes at the right time" and will help health workers "to continue providing the necessary services to save lives in an already over-exhausted health system because of a decade-long war.

According to the statement, "53,800 doses were delivered to the northwest region, which witnessed a large-scale displacement after great combat actions last year." The statement stated that "more shipments are expected to be delivered in the coming weeks and months."
