827 people sickened of the measles last week.
‘There are about 228, 000 doses of the vaccine against the measles in Ukraine. 220, 000 doses of the MMR vaccine will be supplied in Ukraine until the end of this month and then they will be distributed in the regions. We continue to hold the re-distribution to the regions with the difficult epidemical situation and the need of the additional vaccines’, the ministry assured.
Earlier the European Health Security Agency reported that Ukraine was the third in Europe on the number of people infected with measles in 2017. The leaders are Romania and Italy.
