Coronavirus vaccines were sent to Albania and Northern Macedonia through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
The mission followed a request for support from the two countries’ authorities in the EU, in the light of the coronavirus situation.
The assistance offered by Greece consists of 100,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines for each country.
The EU finances up to 75% of the cost of transporting aid sent through the Facility.
Since the pandemic began, more than 45 countries have received vaccines, medical, protective equipment, and other material through the Mechanism.
