Together with the newest supply, UNICEF has delivered 7,415,810 doses of vaccines by various manufacturers (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Sinovac) as part of COVAX.

Deliveries on behalf of the initiative will continue to protect as many people in Ukraine as possible from Covid-19.

"So far, 11 million Ukrainians have received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine. Today, vaccination is primarily the responsibility of everyone to themselves and others. The state has done everything to ensure that Ukrainians have the opportunity to be vaccinated and even choose vaccines. Moderna is the fourth vaccine available in Ukraine for vaccination against Covid-19. I thank the international partners for their systematic support and common desire to overcome the pandemic," Viktor Lyashko, Minister of Health of Ukraine said.
