“In less than 12 months, more than 750 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine have been released for supply to more than 170 countries. Our vaccine continues to be an important tool in overcoming the COVID-19 global health emergency, underpinned by our commitment to provide broad and equitable access, at no profit during the pandemic.”
