As we reported earlier, supplies of vaccines from flu reached Ukraine. The first batch of triple vaccine Jiss Flu (more than 30,000 doses) from South Korea already passed the lab tests and supplied to Ukrainian pharmacy stores. The tetravalent Vaxigrip Tetra from France is supposed to be available for sale in pharmacy shops in about two weeks. Influvac vaccine from the Netherlands will reach the sales soon after passing the lab tests as well.
