US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said that 500,000 doses of Pfizer vaccines for Kosovo bring 20 percent closer to achieving its vaccination goal.
Through a post on Twitter, the US Secretary of State said that this gift represents the common values and unwavering ties between our people.
“Today, the US donated the first contingent of 500,000 doses of Pfizer to Kosovo, bringing it 20 percent closer to achieving its vaccination goal. Delivered through COVAX, this gift represents the common values and unwavering bonds between our people. “Together we can beat COVID-19,” Blinken wrote on his Twitter account.
Today in Kosovo have arrived 35 thousand 100 doses of Pfizer vaccine, donated by the United States of America through the COVAX program. The US will support Kosovo with a total of 500 thousand vaccines, while today only the first contingent has arrived.
At the vaccine acceptance ceremony, the country’s president, Vjosa Osmani, said that months ago she addressed the President of the United States, Joe Biden, with a request to help Kosovo in providing vaccines against Covid-19.
The arrival of vaccines today, Osmani said shows solidarity and reconfirms the strong friendship between Kosovo and the United States.
