Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry plans to run to the vaccination from coronavirus in pharmacy shops. So far, the issue is being considered. Roman Rodina, Director General of Public Health of Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry said so as cited by Budynok.

"We are working on vaccination in drug stores. There's no final decision here, but we are working on normative matters to see if it's appropriate that one can get vaccinated even in drug stores. Besides, we're going to have a flu season, and the vaccination from flu will be up to date in autumn, too", he said.

According to him, currently, there are some 200 centres of mass vaccination all over the country; 600 mobile crews and some 1,300 vaccination points are working.

Earlier, the WHO Committee for Emergencies urged the governments not to demand vaccination certificates from people who travel abroad. Instead, the Organization offers to use tests and self-isolation during border control procedures.

"Do not require proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for international travel as the only pathway or condition permitting international travel, given limited global access and inequitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. State Parties should consider a risk-based approach to the facilitation of international travel by lifting measures, such as testing and/or quarantine requirements, when appropriate, in accordance with the WHO guidance", the statement says.

WHO member countries should consider the risk-based approach to simplification of international traveling, the Organization says.
