More than 40,000 children in Ukraine vaccinated against COVID-19.

In Ukraine, more than 40,000 children over the age of 12 have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

"We have allowed children over the age of 12 to get vaccinated against the coronavirus disease. More than 40,000 children have already taken advantage of this opportunity," Minister of Health of Ukraine Viktor Liashko said at the All-Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine 30. Children Summit", Ukrinform reports.

He added that the issue of allowing COVID-19 vaccination for children aged 5-11 years is also being considered.

"I think that in Ukraine the manufacturer will quickly register changes to the instructions, bring the appropriate medicines and it will also be possible to do so," Liashko said.

According to him, mass COVID-19 vaccination of children is not high on the agenda at the moment as a priority is put on risk groups.

Liashko reminded that the National Vaccination Calendar provides for vaccination against 10 infectious diseases. Currently, all the necessary vaccines are available in Ukraine.

As reported, 13,826,163 people in Ukraine have been vaccinated against COVID-19 since the beginning of the vaccination campaign: 13,826,161 people received one dose, 11,921,738 people are fully vaccinated.

Over the past day, Ukraine reported 8,655 coronavirus cases.
