Another 13.5 million doses of Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19 will be delivered to Ukraine by the end of 2021.

That’s according to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal who spoke at a briefing during a working trip to Donetsk region on Wednesday, October 27, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"By the end of the year, another 13.5 million doses of Pfizer (vaccines - ed.) will arrive. All regions, all vaccination centers and vaccination points have been provided with vaccines," Shmyhal said.
