As we reported earlier, according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, vaccination against Covid-19 with the vaccine produced by Sinovac Biotech will be conducted only after it is registered.

"All countries all over the world do it, with all vaccines: they make contracts on certain volumes [of vaccine] as soon as it's clear it's going to be an efficient drug. And supplies and inoculations will kick off immediately after the official procedures are over so that no precious time is lost," he noted.

The company is expected to release the final results of the clinical trials on January 7.
