The first shipment of coronavirus vaccines from the American company Johnson & Johnson is now on its way to Europe, a spokesman for the European Commission (EC) stated.
The EU, Norway, and Iceland are scheduled to receive 200 million vaccine doses from the US pharmaceutical giant during the year, with 55 million doses expected by the end of June.
EU Commission spokesman Stefan De Keersmaecker confirmed the information on Monday.
It is not known how many doses of the so-called Janssen vaccine will be delivered in the first shipment, but according to the National Institute of Public Health (FHI), Norway expects to receive the first 60,000 doses this week.
