Japan has approved the vaccines manufactured by the British drugmaker, but they are yet to be used domestically.
The government will also give an additional 1 million doses of vaccine each to Taiwan and Vietnam by mid-July. Japan also plans to provide a total of 11 million doses of vaccine to other Southeast Asian countries and Pacific island countries sometime after mid-July through the COVAX international framework for joint purchase and distribution of coronavirus vaccines.
The Foreign Ministry also announced Friday that it would provide emergency grant aid of about $9.26 million to India to support its vaccine cold chain, to maintain and transport the vials at low temperatures.
