Poland plans to deliver 1.2 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine to Ukraine in the third quarter of this year. Delays are caused by irregular deliveries of this vaccine to Poland.
“Poland has not refused to resell [vaccine to Ukraine], the agreement remains relevant. The reason for the postponed signing of the agreement is irregular deliveries of the vaccine to Poland. The signing of agreement and vaccine deliveries are scheduled for the third quarter of this year,” the Ministry of Health of Poland informed in response to an information request from an Ukrinform correspondent.
In April, the Ministry informed Ukrinform that the vaccine could be delivered from Poland to Ukraine in May-June. At the same time, the Ministry noted that the delivery time would depend on the dynamics of deliveries of AstraZeneca (as well as vaccines from other manufacturers) to Poland.
As reported, since the beginning of the vaccination campaign, 2,038,239 people have been vaccinated. In particular, 1,038,237 people received one dose, 823,923 people were fully immunized and received two doses.
