The vaccine will be free to citizens and residents of the Gulf Arab state, which on 25 January approved the Anglo-Swedish drugmaker’s vaccine for emergency use, state media said, without providing the number of doses.

Bahrain’s crown prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, who is also prime minister, thanked Indian prime minister Narendra Modi “and our friends in India for working with us to secure the delivery of” the vaccine, his court said in a Twitter post.

On Monday, SII chief executive Adar Poonawalla told Reuters the firm, the world’s biggest vaccine manufacturer, would supply Saudi Arabia with 3 million AstraZeneca vaccine doses priced at $5.25 each in about a week.

Bahrain is one of the most successful countries in rolling out Covid-19 vaccines to its people, ranking fourth per head of population. It is already providing the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and one manufactured by Chinese state-backed pharmaceutical giant Sinopharm free of charge.
