June 24 (Reuters) - British drugmaker AstraZeneca has signed its tenth supply-and-manufacturing deal for its experimental COVID-19 vaccine with Symbiosis Pharmaceutical for use in clinical trials, the Scottish private firm said on Wednesday.

The companies did not provide any financial terms or details on how many units of the vaccine, AZD1222, will be produced under the agreement.
