Warning against tainted Western Vaccines
"Importing vaccines made in the US or the UK is prohibited. They're completely untrustworthy. It's not unlikely they would want to contaminate other nations. Given our experience with France's HIV-tainted blood supplies, French vaccines aren't trustworthy either," Khamenei said in a tweet on January 8, 2021. 
The tweet was from a longer address, where Khamenei also said "I really don't trust them. Sometimes they want to test the vaccine on other nations." However, he also said that the Iranian government is allowed to supply the COVID vaccine from other, reliable sources.
The Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) stated the import of American Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines had been cancelled because of this. The IRCS head, Karim Hemmati, said late last month that the organization was planning to take delivery of a batch of 150,000 doses of coronavirus vaccines produced by Pfizer Inc.
