Government should be ready for beginning of vaccination - Zelensky

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that the Cabinet of Ministers should be ready for the beginning of vaccination against COVID-19 in all matters.

"People should know exactly when and how it [the vaccination] will take place," the presidential press service quoted him as saying during a traditional conference call on preventing the spread of coronavirus.

"The first to be vaccinated are healthcare workers, the military, the elderly, because they are in the main risk group. I know that the Health Ministry is actively preparing for the signing of the first contracts," Zelensky said.

He stressed that vaccination is a challenge to the whole world, and everywhere, in every country, governments face new challenges.

According to Zelensky, "we must first think about the people."

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said earlier on Monday that negotiations were underway with six manufacturers to supply Ukraine with the COVID-19 vaccine.
