Argentine health authorities announced on the 30th (local time) that they would approve the emergency use of the Corona 19 vaccine developed by Oxford University in the UK and AstraZeneca, a multinational pharmaceutical company.

Argentina is the second to approve the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine after the UK.
