Tehran, IRNA -- Iran is expected to import some 4 million more doses of COVID-19 vaccines within the next 24 hours, according to Deputy Head of Iran Customs Administration (IRICA) Mehrdad Jamali.
Jamali said that three consignments of Chinese Sinopharm vaccine â€“ a total of four million doses â€“ will arrive in the Iranian capital within the next 24 hours.
With the arrival of the new consignments, the country's total imports of COVID-19 vaccine will top 40 million doses.
The biggest consignment of COVID-19 vaccine â€“ five million doses â€“ arrived in the country yesterday.
The first cases of COVID-19 infection were found in Iran in February 2020.
Most part of the high-risk groups has been vaccinated so far and the vaccination continues with a domestically-developed vaccine â€“ Cov-Iran Barekat â€“ coming into the market.
