Another batch of Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine from the United States government has arrived in Ukraine. A shipment of 188,370 doses of vaccine was helped by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). This was reported by the press service of UNICEF.
"These doses, along with a diluent for vaccine dilution, are provided to Ukraine by the US government through the COVAX initiative as part of a global effort to ensure fair and equitable access to safe and effective vaccines against Covid-19 for all countries of the world," UNICEF said.
The new batch of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine will be used to vaccinate Ukrainians in mass vaccination and immunization centers of organized groups.
"By the end of 2021, Ukraine is expected to receive a sufficient number of vaccines from different manufacturers to protect up to 20% of the population from Covid as part of the initiative," the organization added.
