"According to preliminary information, Ukraine may receive the first batch of vaccine in mid- or late January 2021. COVAX says that the first batch of vaccines will make up 3-5% of the total amount that the country should receive," Kuzin said in an interview with the Liga media outlet, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.
He recalled that Ukraine can count on about 8 million doses of the vaccine as part of the global initiative COVAX. Given that each person needs two doses of the vaccine, this should be enough to vaccinate 4 million people, that is, approximately 20% of the country's population.
As Ukrinform reported, Health Minister Maksym Stepanov signed a number of technical documents to receive 8 million doses of the vaccine as part of the global initiative COVAX.
As of December 8, Ukraine reported 832,758 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 10,811 new cases recorded over the past 24 hours.
