Romania plans to provide vaccines to Ireland in the coming weeks

The Romanian government has confirmed that it plans to start delivering coronavirus vaccines to Ireland in the coming weeks, rejecting fears that the deal will not go ahead.

On July 2, Taoiseach Micheál Martin said Ireland would buy 1 million mRNA vaccines after Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said his country was trying to sell vaccines due to low vaccination rates.

«We are currently in technical discussions with our Irish counterparts and aim to secure delivery soon, in the following weeks,» Andre Pasio, Minister of State for Romania’s Ministry of Health, told The Irish Times.

The vice-chairman of Romania’s vaccination program coordinating committee also played down concerns that the Irish/Romanian deal might cause problems.

He said, «Moving such a quantity of highly sensitive biological products is not an easy task and requires proper planning. Specialists from both countries are working together to sort out the final logistical details.»

The deliveries could boost the government’s planned launch of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines for teens over the summer.
