"Now we are working with the manufacturers of vaccines - these are all manufacturers that are currently undergoing the stages of certification of their vaccines and have passed all clinical trials. We have all the proposals, we just finalize them," said Stepanov.
Thus, the head of the ministry did not bring any specific information on the manufacturers.
"The main thing is that we try to get these vaccines to Ukraine as soon as possible. We have set a goal - to conduct first vaccinations in February next year," said the minister.
As we reported earlier, the World Health Organization (WHO) does not envisage mandatory vaccination against coronavirus infection.
"I do not think we envisage any countries creating a mandate for vaccinations. There may be some countries or some situations in countries where professional circumstances require it or highly recommend to be vaccinated,” stated Kate O'Brien, the organization’s director of immunization vaccines and biologicals.
