JAKARTA (Reuters) – Indonesia has approved AstraZeneca (NASDAQ:AZN)’s COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use, Penny K. Lukito, the chief of the country’s food and drug agency, told a news conference on Tuesday.

More than one million doses of the vaccine arrived late on Monday via the COVAX global vaccine-alliance scheme.
