Vaccine from India for peacekeepers finished, now imported from China: UN

The United Nations has said that India's two lakh doses of free vaccine given to peacekeepers last year have been administered to all peacekeepers. Now after the new demand for the vaccine, 3 lakh vaccine doses have been imported from China.


Giving this information, UN Secretary-General's spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said that two lakh vaccine doses were received from India for peacekeepers at the beginning of last year. India donated the vaccine when it was most needed. The announcement of giving the vaccine in the United Nations was made by the External Affairs Minister of India S Jaishankar in February last year. After that, the vaccine was supplied in March itself.


The vaccine received from India has been applied to all peacekeepers. Now the vaccine has been imported from China. India contributes the most to the United Nations peacekeeping force.


Dujarric has said that the campaign to make vaccines available to all UN staff, peacekeepers, and allies who implement the plans will continue.
