Stepanov also reminded that as of today, Ukraine has agreed on the supply of 22 million doses of the vaccine, including 14 million doses on contract and 8 million doses within COVAX.

Meanwhile, the minister drew attention to the failure to deliver on time the vaccines on contracts.

Earlier, Maksym Stepanov stated that 1.7 million doses of the vaccine would be supplied to Ukraine within COVAX until the end of May.
