Amid questions to the national government for not having closed a contract with the Pfizer laboratory to obtain its vaccine against the coronavirus, the national deputy of Together for Change Graciela Ocaña warned that

Argentina "practically renounces all immunity" 

with the signing of the

contract with AstraZeneca.

"It waives practically all immunity, it even allows funds to be taken abroad from Argentina without any type of limit, something that the vaccine law clearly does not allow," stressed Ocaña.

Speaking to the TN channel, the national deputy pointed out: "In the framework of the COVAX Fund, Argentina chose to buy the Astrazeneca vaccines and not those of Pfizer. What surprised us to see was that

the Astrazeneca firm was given more immunity than the one established by law

. We asked the Minister (of Health Carla Vizzotti) at the time and she did not answer us ".


We are struck by why so much itching with Pfizer,

which more or less asks for the same things for its contract,

and not with the case of the Astrazeneca contract.

The Government must explain why it privileged all the businesses with AstraZeneca over others vaccines, "argued Ocaña.
