Press Release:- On Wednesday December 1st, the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) received 42.000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines donated by the government of Argentina.

According to Argentine Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero, “this collaboration is just a token of the historical friendship and positive relations between the Argentine Republic and the Caribbean region. We share the same democratic values, and my government truly appreciates the support we permanently receive from our partners”.

Argentina and the OECS signed a Bilateral Cooperation Agreement in 2013 and, since them, numerous technical cooperation projects in agriculture, public health and environment have been implemented in St. Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda and other member countries.

Argentine MFA Director of Caribbean Affairs and former ambassador to the OECS, Gustavo M. Pandiani, informed to the press that, within this first vaccine donation, “Saint Lucia will receive 18.000 doses, Dominica 2.000, Grenada 11.000 and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines 11.000”.
