Leader of Servant of the People faction David Arakhamia has urged the U.S. government to share with Ukraine part of excess AstraZeneca vaccine against coronavirus. It was mentioned in a letter of the politician to the coordinator of the global response to Covid-19 and safety of health of the U.S. State Department as the faction reported.
“We are grateful to the U.S. for constant support and help to Ukraine and respectfully urge your government to allocate a fair part of excess vaccines to Ukraine,” Arakhamia stated.
According to him, despite the aim of the government to vaccinate the majority of adults until the end of 2021, the vaccination is held slowly due to the absence of inner supplies and issues tied with the search and receiving of safe and efficient vaccines.
Arakhamia noted that as of today, over 750,000 Ukrainians received their first dose of the anti-Covid-19 vaccine and a minority of them is fully vaccinated.
Recently, the U.S. government stated intention to allocate their excess AstraZeneca vaccine among foreign partners and allies.
As we reported, vaccination centers throughout Ukraine have used almost all of the AstraZeneca (Covishield and SKBio) Covid-19 vaccines intended for immunization with the first dose.
