Ukraine's Health Minister Maksym Stepanov claimed that the legal supplies of the vaccine should appear at the commercial market until the summer as Interfax-Ukraine reported.

“If we talk about the appearance of the vaccine against coronavirus disease at the commercial market in sufficient number, I believe, until summer the legal supplies of the vaccine will appear,” Stepanov noted.

According to the Health Minister, the free vaccine would be available for all Ukrainians. However, the process of vaccination would be held in five stages. At the first stage, the medical employees, old people and people in the risk groups would be vaccinated. The coverage of the people for vaccination would grow. At the fifth stage, it is planned to vaccinate people who do not enter the risk group on age or professional criteria and do not have related diseases.

“If a person understands that he/she enters the fifth group, in other words, he/she would be vaccinated at the end of 2021 – the beginning of 2022, but a person wants to be vaccinated earlier; a person might purchase the vaccine at the commercial market,” the minister added.
