Ukrainian Health Minister Maksym Stepanov has asked U.S. Chargé d'Affaires Kristina Kvien to help Ukraine get a priority in the supply of coronavirus vaccines for "emergency testing and using." This was reported by the press service of the Health Ministry on its Facebook page.

"In the next two weeks, we will sign contracts for the supply of vaccine against COVID-19 with some manufacturers. However, this does not guarantee that Ukraine will receive vaccines in the coming months as the first batch of vaccines will cover the needs of GAVI COVAX," said Stepanov.

In this context, he drew attention to the fact that Ukraine is in a difficult situation due to Russian aggression in the east.

Kvien, in turn, assured that she and her team would do everything possible to ensure that Ukraine received vaccines against coronavirus as soon as possible.

As we reported earlier, according to Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko said that the country plans to vaccinate 20.9 million people (50% of the population of Ukraine) against coronavirus during 2021.
