As for side effects, vaccination can cause the following reactions:

  • redness, pain, swelling at the injection site;
  • fever or chills;
  • headaches, muscle or joint pain;
  • enlarged lymph nodes;
  • nausea;
  • fatigue;
  • insomnia.

Meanwhile, the S&P Global Ratings predicts that by the middle of this year, Ukraine will be able to vaccinate (full vaccination consists of two doses) only 2.7% of the population against coronavirus. 

It is noted that in the first half of 2021, Ukraine should receive 2.3 million doses out of 8 million guaranteed - as part of the COVAX initiative. If we take into account the fact that a complete vaccination against Covid-19 consists of two doses of the drug, then only 2.7% of the population can be vaccinated with this amount.

At the same time, the agency notes that the country's authorities expect 25 million doses from various sources, which is enough to immunize 30% of the population with two doses.

"However, vaccine delivery is likely to be slow," the S&P predicts.
