Ukraine may begin the first stage of its vaccination campaign against Covid-19 on February 15. This was announced by the country's Chief Sanitary Doctor Viktor Lyashko, BBC reports.

According to him, the first batches of coronavirus vaccines can be brought to Ukraine around that date.

"We are talking about February 15. Somewhere so. Maybe later. Many processes are at the stage of coordination," Lyashko said.

He noted that only force majeure could prevent the vaccination from taking place in February. The official, however, did not specify what vaccine would be used.

As we reported earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the overall amount of coronavirus vaccines received under the COVAX mechanism would not be enough to vaccinate the required number of Ukrainian citizens.

"Volodymyr Zelensky also informed his interlocutor (President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, - ed.) That the vaccines allocated within the COVAX fund will not be enough to vaccinate the critical population in 2021. So, he called for more active involvement of the European Commission in Ukraine's negotiation process with its producers," reads the message.
