Today there are 10.3 million doses of coronavirus vaccines in Ukraine, Minister of Healthcare Viktor Lyashko stated during a briefing.

In particular, in Ukraine there are three million doses of Moderna vaccine, 800 thousand doses of AstraZeneca vaccine, 4.5 million doses of CoronaVac and 2 million doses of Comirnaty vaccines from Pfizer.

Vaccinations can be given at vaccination points or in mass vaccination centers where doctors who have signed agreements with the National Health Service of Ukraine work.

Currently, there are 1,174 such institutions. Of these, 65 are private and 14 are individual entrepreneurs.

The recommended interval, in which it is desirable to make the second vaccination is 14-28 days for the CoronaVac vaccine, 21-28 days for Pfizer, 28 days for Moderna, 4-12 weeks for AstraZeneca.

Lyashko also noted that vaccination significantly reduces the risk of death from Delta strain of coronavirus.

"Vaccination reduces the risk of death from Delta strain Covid-19 by 11 times. These are the results of a study by the American Center for Disease Control and Prevention. A number of European countries have already confirmed this study in practice. For example, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Belgium, with over 65% of the vaccinated population, now show 8-14 times lower mortality than during the spring wave," Lyashko said.

The Minister noted that today in Ukraine, 91-92% of patients in hospitals are unvaccinated.

As it was reported on November 9, 267,401 people in Ukraine are vaccinated against Covid-19. 150,663 people received one dose, 116,738 people were fully immunized.
