President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky demanded that the government present a detailed coronavirus vaccination program in Ukraine as soon as possible. This was announced by Zelensky during a conference call on preventing the spread of coronavirus infection.

Zelensky noted that the vaccination program in Ukraine should contain a detailed plan for each region.

"It is crucial to determine the overall amount of vaccines, clear timing of vaccination process, a list of categories of the population that should be vaccinated in the first place. A vaccine management and logistics system must also be set up, including the establishment of systems of digital recording, vaccination, and distribution," said Zelensky.
