As we reported earlier, the World Health Organization predicts that Ukraine will be able to receive the first batch of successfully tested and registered vaccine against Covid-19 in the second quarter of 2021.
"We have more than 200 experimental vaccines at different stages of development in laboratories or in different types of trials. Of them, eight vaccines are already in the third phase of clinical trials, and we are currently considering another one vaccine. So we actually have nine vaccines which should show results by the end of December 2020 that we can start studying. If all goes well, the vaccine in Ukraine may be available for vulnerable groups in the second half of 2021," head of the WHO Country Office in Ukraine Dr Jarno Habicht said.
According to Dr Jarno Habicht, the vaccination program should cover 2/3 of the world's population. Ukraine will receive the Covid-19 vaccine within the framework of the COVAX program.
