According to Ukraine's Deputy Foreign Minister Yevhen Enin, Poland may transfer 1.5 million doses of coronavirus vaccine to Ukraine. It was reported by Interfax-Ukraine.

"The Polish side has once again showed its friendly attitude towards the Ukrainian side by offering us a certain amount of vaccine. This is about 1.5 million doses of vaccines that the Polish side could transfer to the Ukrainian side after receiving the relevant amount of vaccines by Poland itself," Enin said.

He also noted that Ukraine holds negotiations within the relevant international mechanisms to ensure mass vaccination and expects to receive about 8 million vaccines.

Meanwhile, Ukraine has signed the first contract with Sinovac Biotech for the supply of 1.9 million doses of coronavirus vaccine. 

Thus, Ukrainian Health Ministry will purchase 1,913,316 doses at the price of 504 hryvnias (17,8 dollars) for one dose. However, Ukrainians will be vaccinated at the expense of the state budget.

It is reported that the drug has not yet been registered for use. The World Health Organization (WHO) is expected to approve it next month.

According to the results of intermediate data, this drug's effectiveness is up to 97%.
