After being vaccinated against Covid-19, Ukrainians will be issued vaccination passports in the same way as the European Union does. Health Minister Maksym Stepanov reported about it on the air of Ukraine 24 TV channel.

The Minister said that mass vaccination against coronavirus in Ukraine would begin in February.

"We have taken serious steps with the countries that produce these vaccines. I think that we will start mass vaccination in our country in February, which will come in two weeks. Everything you say about passports, about all other documents, which citizens of the European Union will receive, will be issued in the same way to the citizens of Ukraine," he noted.

As we reported earlier, Viktor Lyashko, Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine, stated that the country could be using any of the two currently produced mRNA vaccines - Pfizer or Moderna.

"The vaccine from COVAX is expected to be shipped in late March. However, on January 6, we received the letter from GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation) with the request for Ukraine to confirm its readiness to accept the mRNA vaccine according to the previously filed appeal. The thing is, the producers of mRNA vaccine (currently it is produced only by Pfizer and Moderna) turned to GAVI, offering to provide a certain number of doses," said the official.
