At the unveiling of IRGC-produced Noora COVID-19 Vaccine, IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Hossein Salami offered to supply the United States with COVID-19 vaccines, if it were to experience a shortage. He made his remarks in a report that was aired on Channel 1 (Iran) on June 27, 2021. General Salami said: "We will get everything they sanctioned and banned for us." In the report, Hossein Samadinia, the president of IRGC's Baqiyatallah Hospital was administered the first dose of the vaccine.

Reporter: "The Noora coronavirus vaccine has been unveiled. The Noora vaccine was produced following a 16-month effort by the experts of the [IRGC's] Baqiyatallah Hospital, with the participation of the researchers at the [IRGC's] Emam Hossein University. Today, the vaccine officially entered the clinical trial phase. Baqiyatallah Hospital President [Hossein Samadinia] was the first to get the first dose of this vaccine.




Hossein Salami: "I think it is time for us to say to the Americans: We will give you vaccines. If you have a shortage, we are willing to help you out. I promise the Americans, as well as the Iranians, rest assured that we will get everything they sanctioned and banned for us. In addition, we are willing to share these accomplishments with them."
