With the arrival of three new consignments of COVID-19 vaccine on Sunday, the country’s total imports of COVID-19 vaccine will top 40 million doses, according to Deputy Head of Iran Customs Administration (IRICA) Mehrdad Jamali.

Jamali said on Saturday that three consignments of Chinese Sinopharm vaccine – a total of four million doses – will arrive in the Iranian capital within the next 24 hours.

The biggest consignment of COVID-19 vaccine – five million doses – also arrived in the country on Friday.

The first cases of COVID-19 infection were found in Iran in February 2020.

Iran's Health Ministry announced on Sunday that the coronavirus disease killed some 515 more Iranians over the past 24 hours so that the total deaths from the pandemic exceeded 110,000.

Most part of the high-risk groups has been vaccinated so far and the vaccination continues with a domestically-developed vaccine – Cov-Iran Barekat – coming into the market.
