Lithuania expressed readiness to share vaccines from Covid-19 in Ukraine when it has a surplus of these. Dmytro Kuleba, the Foreign Minister of Ukraine reported that during the briefing in Kyiv.
"When Lithuania has extra vaccines from Covid-19, it will share them with Ukraine", Kuleba said after the meeting with his counterpart Gabrielius Landsbergis.
At that, the Lithuanian official admitted that "Ukraine is a big country, and Lithuania can't cover the needs of entire Ukraine with its extra vaccine".
"But we'll ask all our friends in the EU to join our initiative and help Ukraine... As for when it happens, I guess it's too soon to answer this question", he added.
On February 24, Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry will begin the vaccination campaign against coronavirus. Viktor Lyashko, the Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine reported that on a briefing.
Kyiv, Zhytomyr, Cherkasy and Chernihiv will become the first major cities to get the vaccine supplies. The other cities and regions will get their supplies either on late February 24 or early February 25.
The first ones to get injections will be the medical workers who render aid for those who suffer from Covid-19. The vaccination will begin as soon as the supplies reach storages in the regions tomorrow.
