Ukrainians who have been vaccinated with CoronaVac will receive an international vaccination certificate.

That's according to Minister of Health, Viktor Liashko.

On June 1, the World Health Organization recommended the Chinese coronavirus vaccine CoronaVac for emergency use.

"The WHO has confirmed that the vaccine meets international standards of safety, efficacy, and quality. WHO's approval of the CoronaVac vaccine allows an international vaccination certificate to be issued to all who have completed the full course of vaccination," Liashko said.

The minister recalled that Ukraine had already purchased 1,913,000 doses of this vaccine and that health officials are now offering jabs to people over the age of 65, low-mobility persons and those providing care to them, as well as athletes, education workers engaged in school finals, servicemen with the Armed Forces, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, critical infrastructure staff, as well as those who are registered for vaccination through the Diia portal.
