Ukraine and another 85 poor countries will not get the massive access to the vaccine from coronavirus until 2023. The Economist reported that in their story.

The first countries that managed to get this access are the UK, the USA and most of the EU member countries. Doctors in these countries will be able to get the priority groups of population vaccinated until late March. Other countries will receive the vaccine in late June.

Most likely, the vaccine will first reach Europe, the United States, Singapore, the UAE and Hong Kong - until the end of 2021.

According to analysts of The Economist, Russia is among the countries with the average income level; it also produced its own vaccines, and the possible immunization campaign in this country may be over until the middle of 2022.

Ukraine belongs to the group of countries with the low income level; these countries rely on the COVAX, the global program of supplies of the vaccine. These countries, most of which are located on the African continent, are supposed to get the access to the vaccine last.

Two of six billion vaccine doses will be passed within this program in 2021 - mainly to doctors (at that, COVAX will reach only 20 percent of popuilation in every country)
