The Government of Ecuador announced early Wednesday that it has signed first-level agreements with the Johnson and Johnson, Moderna and Sputnik-Gamaleya laboratories, to obtain doses of vaccines against COVID-19.

In addition, previous dialogues and negotiations continue with Sinopharm, Cansino Biologics and Novavax for the acquisition of additional does of their vaccines.

Weeks ago, the Vice President of the Republic, María Alejandra Muñoz, announced that the current regime has negotiated 20,097,155 COVID-19 vaccine doses to be administered in the country.
