COVAX: Ukraine to receive part of 500 million doses of Pfizer vaccine from United States.

The United States will donate part of 500 million doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines to Ukraine as part of the Covax Facility.

U.S. Chargé d'Affaires in Ukraine Kristina Kvien said this during a visit to the COVID-19 vaccination center in Odesa, Ukrinform reports.

"About a month ago President Biden announced that he will purchase another 500 million additional doses of Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines to contribute to Covax, which is the facility that is sharing these vaccines around the world, including with Ukraine," Kvien said.

According to her, USAID in Ukraine has been working very hard to set up distribution networks and cold chain networks that allow the vaccine to be 100% ready to go when it’s ready to be put in arms.

"The United States wants to play its part in helping Ukraine and other countries around the world receive enough vaccines to make sure that everyone who wants a vaccine is able to get it. The United States is the largest global contributor to the Covax Facility, we’ve given over $4 billion to that facility to help distribute vaccines around the world," Kvien noted.

The United States government is looking forward to continue its work with Ukraine and around the world to help reduce COVID and ultimately wipe it out, the U.S. Chargé d'Affaires stressed.

Ukraine recorded 541 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases to 2,238,364.
