Ukrainians will be able to sign up for COVID-19 vaccination through the Diia app, Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov has said.
He said this during the All-Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine 30. Coronavirus: Challenges and Responses" in Kyiv on February 10, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
He noted that the Ministry of Digital Transformation and the Ministry of Health are developing an effective digital tool to simplify the vaccination process for Ukrainians.
"We want every Ukrainian to have access to vaccination against coronavirus, so that people can easily register, be aware of the country's plans, as well as when and how they will be vaccinated. We are talking about effective management of citizens' expectations," Fedorov noted.
As reported, Ukraine will receive 8 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine within the framework of the COVAX Facility, in particular 117,000 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and from 2.2 million to 3.7 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine during the first and second quarters.
