Colombo (News 1st);  The administration of the Colombo Port City has forwarded a request to the Ministry of Health to provide the Sinopharm vaccine to Chinese nationals in Sri Lanka.

The Health Ministry said the request currently under review, however, a spokesperson said no final decision was made on the matter.

Sri Lanka’s National Medicines Regulatory Authority (NMRA) on Saturday approved China’s Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use in the island country.

According to State Minister of Production, Supply and Regulation of Pharmaceuticals Channa Jayasumana, this is the third Covid-19 vaccine to be approved in the country after the AstraZeneca and Russia’s Sputnik V jabs.

The Health Ministry said the China-manufactured Covid-19 vaccine will reach Sri Lanka next week.
