"We must be ready for vaccination. The state has to decide who will be vaccinated in the first instance, how many patients can be admitted to hospitals per month. And most importantly, how to help medical institutions with vaccinations. After all, such a mass vaccination in the world will be done for the first time," Zelensky said.
It is noted that Zelensky "keeps under control the preparation for the purchase of Covid-19 vaccine and [preparation for] the mass vaccination of Ukrainians."
Meanwhile, Ukraine expects to get the vaccines against coronavirus infection developed by world produces at the end of the first or beginning of the second quarter of 2021.
“Ukraine will get the vaccine, about 8 million doses on COVAX global initiative. Until December 7, we have the signing of proper documents. I believe that the term of the supply of this vaccine: the end of the first – the beginning of the second quarter,” Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said.
He added that the Health Ministry is at the stage of the finalization of the agreements with the world producers of vaccines that passed the third stage of the clinical trials, particularly, Pfizer, on the supplies to Ukraine.
