So far, the introduction of Covid-passports in Ukraine is not being considered at this point. This was announced by Chief Sanitary Doctor Viktor Lyashko, RBC-Ukraine reports.

"This issue is under control, but it is not yet implemented as we are still collecting additional information that will ensure that a person vaccinated against Covid-19 is no longer able to infect other people," the official said.

According to Lyashko, if special passports are introduced, relevant vaccination certificates will be issued only if a WHO-approved vaccine is applied.

As we reported earlier, Health Minister Maksym Stepanov stated that he was not considering the possibility of using the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine.

"We do not consider the use of the Russian vaccine in our vaccination plan today. We have signed an agreement for the supply of a vaccine produced by the Chinese pharmaceutical company Sinovac Biotech, which is one of the largest vaccine manufacturers in the world," the statement said.
