Malaysia just announced the purchase of 6.4 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, and is in final negotiations with three other vaccine companies!
Malaysia Buys 6.4 Million AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine Doses!
On 22 December 2020, Malaysia announced the purchase of 6.4 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
The purchase was signed earlier on Monday, 21 December 2020, but the deal only announced today.
Because the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine requires two doses per person, the 6.4 million doses are only enough to vaccinate a maximum of 3.2 million people – approximately 10% of the Malaysian population.
Together with 12.8 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Malaysia now has enough to vaccinate 30% of the population by the end of 2021. The total costs of both purchases are about US$504.4 million.
That is, however, nowhere close enough to create herd immunity, which requires 70%-80% of the population to be vaccinated.
After AstraZeneca Vaccine Deal : Sinovac, Can-Sino, Gamaleya Vaccines
Malaysia plans to vaccinate some 83% of the population. To achieve that goal, the Malaysian government announce that they are in final negotiations with :
- two Chinese companies – Sinovac and Can-Sino Biologics,
- as well as Russian company Gamaleya Institute.
