AstraZeneca doses in Sri Lanka are safe - Min. Pathirana

The government says Sri Lankans should not be afraid to get the AstraZeneca vaccine as the current issue related to the vaccine is confined only to a particular batch which has not come to Sri Lanka.
According to cabinet spokesman Ramesh Pathirana, the issue involving the particular vaccine has been found only in one batch.

"Doses from that batch have not come to Sri Lanka," he said, emphasising that it is safe for Sri Lankans to receive the vaccine despite it being suspended in some European countries.
