Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal has instructed law enforcement officers and the Ministry of Health to check the information that appeared in the media about the secret vaccination against coronavirus in Kyiv. PM wrote this on his Telegram page.
"I instructed the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Internal Affairs to check the information published in the media about possible clandestine vaccination with drugs of unknown origin. And I will immediately inform you of my position ... I myself will be vaccinated at my own expense in the second or third stage, when the officially registered vaccine arrives at Ukrainian clinics," Shmygal wrote.
Shmygal also said that according to the plan approved by the Ministry of Health, the first batch of vaccines in Ukraine will be received by doctors "working at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19."
