Mass vaccination centers will start operating in five Ukrainian cities on the weekend.

This time, Ternopil and Poltava will join Kyiv, Odesa, and Lviv, as reported by the TSN TV news service.

The vaccination will be carried out with the use of the Chinese CoronaVac vaccine. Those who have previously signed up for the COVID-19 vaccination waiting list in the Diia mobile app will be able to get vaccinated.

The Health Ministry assures there will be enough vaccines for all willing to get their jabs.

"So far, about 20 million doses of vaccine have been contracted by the government. According to the calculations and plans that have now been developed by the Health Ministry, this [shortage of vaccines] should not take place," said Chief Medical Officer Ihor Kuzin.
