SAN JOSE (Reuters) – U.S. drugmaker Pfizer has notified Costa Rica that shipments of its COVID-19 vaccine would be suspended for three weeks, the Central American country’s health ministry said on Thursday.

The shipments are now expected mid-February, the ministry said, adding that Pfizer said Costa Rica’s vaccine campaign would be able to continue using available reserves of the vaccine.
