Ukraine will receive 10 million doses of Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine. This was stated by the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Israel Yevgen Korniychuk, reports the MP from the Servant of the People party Olga Vasylevska-Smaglyuk.
"According to the results of the agreements between the team of diplomats and the Office of the President, 10 million doses of Pfizer vaccines are being prepared for shipment to Ukraine. The draft contract has already been sent to the Ministry of Health," the message says. "
The vaccine will be sent to Ukraine from the USA.
On February 24, Ukraine launched a campaign to vaccinate the population against Covid-19 with the Indian CoviShield. To date, 1,338 people have been vaccinated in the country. Most of the vaccinations were made in the Cherkasy region. Now immunization is carried out exclusively for the priority group of the population - doctors and medical workers.
Despite the fact that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that CoviShield is "one of the best vaccines", most of the doctors at the Oleksandrivska Hospital in Kyiv, who work with Covid patients, refused to be vaccinated with the Indian drug.
