The Ministry of Health is interested in conducting free vaccination against Covid-19, which means that Ukrainians should not consider vaccination at their own expense in private medical institutions. Chief Sanitary Doctor Viktor Lyashko declared it on the air of Ukraine 24 TV channel.
"The state is interested in making vaccination free for all segments of the population. Therefore, at the first stages, it is not necessary to consider the possibility of vaccination at their own expense in private organizations, because we are interested and have the resources to buy all vaccines that will enter the Ukrainian market or will have an opportunity to do so. When we talk about the potential possibility of vaccination at our own expense, we are thinking of at least the second half of 2021, but that is not a fact," Lyashko said.
As we reported earlier, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, quarantine restrictions, economic damage, and human suffering might be prolonged due to global inequalities in the distribution of coronavirus vaccines.
