Iran Returns COVID Shots
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday February 23, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Iran has returned 820,000 out of the 1 million anti-COVID shots that were donated by Poland to help Iran.

The shots that were returned are from the United States and Britain. They were produced by AstraZeneca.

Iranian Healthy spokesperson Mohammad Hashemi said: “But when the vaccines arrived in Iran, we found out that 820,000 doses of them which were imported from Poland were from the United States.”

And then he added: “after coordination with the Polish ambassador to Iran, it was decided that the vaccines would be returned.”

As far back as 2020, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all state matters, rejected any possibility of American or British vaccines entering the country. He called them “forbidden."

135,000 Iranians have died from COVID.

Iran has the highest death rate from COVID in the Middle East. 90% of Iranian adults over 18 have had two shots. Only 37% have received a third shot.

Iran has been relying on Sinopharm, the state-backed Chinese anti-COVID vaccine, but also offers Iranian citizens a smorgasbord of other shots to choose from, including Russia’s Sputnik V, Indian firm Bharat’s Covaxin and its own Iranian vaccine called COVIran Barekat shot. British-Swedish owned AstraZeneca makes up a substantial amount of Iran’s inoculations.

But they still need more.
