An aeroplane carrying 1 million doses of the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine landed at Belgrade airport Nikola Tesla on Saturday, and it was welcomed by the Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic who said on that occasion he would receive this particular vaccine in the coming days.
The vaccines were delivered in 10 containers with 125,000 doses in each of them, said Vucic.
Apart from him, the vaccines were received by Health Minister Zlatibor Loncar, Head of Security and Intelligence Agency Bratislav Gasic and the Chinese Ambassador to Serbia Chen Bo.
On this occasion, Vucic thanked Chinese President XI Jinping and the Chinese Ambassador for this extremely valuable shipment for Serbia.
The Chinese Sinopharm vaccine is the third vaccine to be used in this country, after Pfizer’s and the Russian Sputnik V vaccine.
