Earlier, we reported that Sinovac, the vaccine against coronavirus designed and developed in China has been registered in Ukraine. Lekkhim, Ukraine's pharmaceutical company made a deal about shipment of 5,000,000 doses of the vaccine, including 1.9 million doses purchased via the government procurement system. Previously, there were two registered vaccines from coronavirus in Ukraine: Covishield (developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca), and the U.S.-made vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech.
We previously wrote that by summer, Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry plans to conduct five million vaccination procedures monthly. However, Ukraine's Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said he was not satisfied with the number of people vaccinated against Covid-19, so he decided to personally intervene in the vaccination situation to "significantly increase the number of vaccinated in the coming days."
