Iranians Get Jabs In Armenia Amid Vaccine Shortages

news 3

Armenia’s offer of free coronavirus vaccines to any foreign visitor has drawn many people from neighbouring Iran and other countries to the ex-Soviet Caucasus nation. The Iranians initially visited the Armenian border city of Meghri to get the shots, but the Armenian authorities have decided earlier this week that all foreign nationals should get the shots in the Armenian capital, Yerevan. “Our citizens are our priority, but I repeat again that the pandemic doesn’t recognise citizenship and we should take this into consideration. Besides, I would like to mention that we expect similar responses from other countries where Armenian citizens live,” said Armenia’s Health Minister Anahit Avanesyan at a news conference on Friday.
