    Poland helps Australia. One million doses of Pfizer's vaccine will go to the Antipodes. Premier Scott Morrison thanks for 'a million doses of hope'

    Australia thanks Poland for donating one million doses of the Coronavirus vaccine. “There are indeed more than a million doses of hope ahead,” said Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

    “There are indeed more than a million doses of hope ahead,” said Stott Morrison. The Prime Minister said a plane carrying vaccines from Warsaw via Dubai had arrived in his country.  


    “We have been talking with the Polish government for several weeks and have secured an additional million Pfizer doses. The new doses are in addition to the 40 million Pfizer doses that Australia has already contracted to supply. Of course, in the fourth quarter of this year we will again accelerate significantly,” said the Prime Minister.


    “These million doses will give hope to people across the country, especially in New South Wales, where we are fighting the Delta strain in the most important battle, we had in this country during the COVID-19 pandemic,” added the Australian Prime Minister.


    Morrison said the newly secured doses from Poland would target people between the ages of 20 and 39. As it turns out, this particular group is the most vulnerable to Delta infection in Australia.


    Australia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Marise Payne thanked Polish authorities for sending additional Pfizer doses to her country. 


    “I want to join the Prime Minister in thanking for delivering one million vaccines to Australia and I want to personally thank Minister Zbigniew Rau and of course the Australian Ambassador to Poland, Lloyd Broderick,” she said.


    There’s a lockdown going on in Australia. On Sunday, it was reported that Australia’s Health Ministry had recorded 415 new cases of coronavirus. Four people died on COVID-19.
