The World Health Organization (WHO) does not envisage mandatory vaccination against coronavirus. This was stated by Kate O'Brien, the organization’s director of immunization vaccines and biologicals, Reuters reported.
"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,” she noted.
As we reported earlier, about 20 million people from various risk groups will be vaccinated against coronavirus in Ukraine at the expense of the state budget.
"All risk categories (vulnerable populations) include about 20 million people. We believe that they need to be vaccinated and this should be done at the expense of the state budget. These are people over 60 years old, people with concomitant diseases, these are all categories based on occupational characteristics. They need to be vaccinated at the expense of the budget and we believe it will be right," Ukrainian Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said.
