PANAMA CITY (Reuters) – Panama has signed agreements with four producers of COVID-19 vaccines to acquire a total of 5.5 million doses, enough for 80% of the population, senior health ministry official Nadja Porcell said on Tuesday.

Vaccines from drugmaker Pfizer are set to begin arriving in early 2021, Porcell said in a televised address.
