Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal assured that Ukraine will receive the first batch of Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine in the coming weeks. The prime minister announced this during a government meeting.
"In the coming weeks, Ukraine will receive vaccines from Pfizer / BioNTech. We are talking about 117,000 doses of vaccine under the COVAX program, which will immediately be distributed to vaccinate hospital workers that provide care to patients with Covid-19. Vaccines from Pfizer / BioNTech are just the start, and already in February - early March we expect significantly more deliveries," Shmygal said.
Shmygal noted that only a proven and safe vaccine, which has passed all the necessary clinical trials and is approved in other developed countries will be imported to Ukraine.
"I assure you that everyone who wants to make a free and safe vaccine will be given this opportunity in accordance with the National Vaccination Plan," the prime minister added.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky demanded to make registration for Covid-19 vaccination in Ukraine clear and convenient.
"The government must clearly explain to people how to register for the Covid-19 vaccination and how this process will take place. The online platform should be clear and convenient," Volodymyr Zelensky said.
Ukraine is preparing an online platform through which people will be able to register in the queue for Covid-19 vaccination. The Cabinet of Ministers will present it in February.
