Slovakia allocates EUR 600,000 to Ukraine for purchase of COVID-19 vaccines.

Slovakia provided EUR 600,000 in aid to Ukraine for the purchase of COVID-19 vaccines.

“The parties, in particular, discussed the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Prime Minister of Ukraine thanked Slovakia for providing assistance in the amount of €600,000 for the purchase of vaccines. For his part, Eduard Heger noted that Slovakia was actively promoting the initiative to distribute vaccines to neighboring countries and will continue to do so in the future,” the Government portal informed following the meeting between Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal and Prime Minister of Slovakia Eduard Heger on May 28.

Shmyhal informed the Prime Minister of Slovakia that Ukraine was working on the creation of a national digital COVID-19 vaccine certificate.

"It is critical to ensure its compatibility with the relevant certificate in the EU and WHO. We also need to work in synergy with the EU to create a legal framework for the implementation and mutual recognition of these certificates. We hope that Slovakia will also contribute to the mutual recognition of digital certificates and the creation of a mechanism for simplified border crossing with EU countries amid the pandemic," the Head of the Government of Ukraine said.

As reported, Slovakia donated EUR 195,000 worth of personal protective equipment for COVID-19 to the Okhmatdyt children's hospital in Kyiv during Heger’s visit on May 28.
