Ukraine has enough vaccines to immunize military – Liashko

Health Minister Viktor Liashko says Ukraine has enough coronavirus vaccines to immunize military personnel.

He said this during an hour of questions to the government in the Verkhovna Rada on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Vaccination of the military, primarily those who defend the borders of our country and those who are in full combat readiness, is a priority for us today. It has been carried out since the first stage [of vaccination campaign]. Today there are enough vaccines to immunize the entire military personnel," Liashko said.

He assessed the percentage of the military vaccinated against coronavirus as "quite large." The servicemen are vaccinated by both health workers of the Ministry of Defense and doctors at vaccination points.

As reported, over the past day, 50,840 people were vaccinated against COVID-19 in Ukraine. In particular, 46,868 people got their first jab, and 3,972 people were fully vaccinated.

Since the beginning of the vaccination campaign, 1,123,663 people have been vaccinated, of which 142,062 people have been fully vaccinated by receiving two doses (two of them received one dose abroad).
