"Ukraine has received formal confirmation from COVAX of a request for a COVID-19 vaccine. In addition to the planned purchases of the vaccine by budgetary funds, Ukraine will receive 100% more than 8 million doses of the vaccine free of charge, as well as syringes for injections. We continue to work to ensure that refrigeration equipment (+2 ... + 8) for vaccination points is delivered as soon as possible," Liashko wrote on his Facebook page.
As Ukrinform reported, in response to Ukraine’s request, the COVAX initiative recommended preparing an infrastructure for storing and delivering vaccines.
Ukraine budgeted UAH 2.6 billion for the purchase of vaccines.
The COVID-19 vaccine is expected to arrive in Ukraine in early March 2021. Given that each person needs two doses of the vaccine, 8 million doses will be enough to vaccinate 4 million people, that is, approximately 20% of the country's population.
