A centre for mass vaccination will be opened at Atlas Weekend festival in Kyiv. Those willing to get inoculated will be able to do so at Pavilion No.9 of Kyiv's Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy from July 5 through July 11. Healthcare Ministry reported that on July 2.
"Our goal is to get as many people as possible inoculated against Covid-19 so as to reach collective immunity. Another centre for mass vaccination will be working during the Atlas Weekend next week. Not only this will let us protect more people from coronavirus disease but also make the inoculations among the youth even more popular", the Minister said.
The centre's working hours will be from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. One won't need the tickets for the festival to get inoculated. The doctors will use CoronaVac by Sinovac Biotech.
As of late June, Ukraine had more than 130 centres of mass vaccination working all over the country.
The WHO is worried about the crowds of fans on football stadiums, in bars and pubs in countries that host Euro 2020 have been contributing to the growth of Covid-19 sickness rate.
Reuters cites the WHO data, according to which the number of new cases of morbidity already increased by 10 percent due to crowds in the cities and the weakening of social restrictions.
"We need to look much beyond just the stadiums themselves. We need to look at how people get there, are they travelling in large crowded convoys of buses? And when they leave the stadiums, are they going into crowded bars and pubs to watch the matches? It is these small continuous events that are driving the spread of the virus," WHO's senior emergency officer Catherine Smallwood said.
