This month, Ukraine will get two million doses of Moderna vaccine; they will arrive from the U.S., as part of the COVAX global mechanism. Viktor Lyashko, Ukraine's Healthcare Minister said so as quoted by RBC-Ukraine.
"We made a deal with the U.S.; they promise us to deliver two million doses (...) They give them through COVAX, and we signed all documents through COVAX", Lyashko said.
The Moderna drug is on the list of the vaccines certified by the EMA. The others are Pfizer/BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson and Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca). According to the new rules, since July 1, tourists from other countries can travel across the EU as long as they hold the "vaccination certificate", which confirms that they are inoculated with one of these four vaccines.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration plans to add a warning about rare cases of heart inflammation in adolescents and young adults to fact sheets for the Pfizer/BioNTech (PFE.N), and Moderna (MRNA.O) Covid-19 vaccines. U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advisory groups found the inflammation in adolescents and young adults is likely linked to the vaccines, but that the benefits of the shots appeared to clearly outweigh the risk. Patients with heart inflammation following vaccination generally recover from the symptoms and do well.
