Ukraine is ready for booster vaccination and, if necessary, for full re-vaccination campaigns. The booster vaccination campaign could be launched in January or February 2022. Viktor Lyashko, the Healthcare Minister said so in the interview with BBC.

"Not only we are going to [inject third doses], we're completely ready. There's enough vaccine in Ukraine", the official said. 

Lyashko claimed that the Ministry signed the deals for supplies of vaccine from coronavirus for the next year. He added that the contracted amount of drugs will be enough to conduct either vaccination with the third dose or full re-vaccination.
