Enough COVID vaccines in Ukraine, new vaccination sites should be set up - Shmyhal.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal has called on the leaders of communities to set up vaccination centers.

He said this at a government meeting on Wednesday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"I urge the heads of communities to actively create vaccination centers. This is important and it applies not only to large regional centers, but also to all cities, towns, communities where such sites have not been established yet," Shmyhal said.

He added that Ukraine had enough COVID-19 vaccines to continue the mass vaccination campaign.

Vaccination against COVID-19 in Ukraine was reported to begin on February 24, 2021. A total of 1,489,446 vaccinations have been carried out since the beginning of the vaccination campaign. Some 1,328,068 people received the first dose, and 161,378 were fully vaccinated.

To date, Ukraine has received 500,000 doses of AstraZeneca (Covishield) vaccine from the Serum Institute of India and 1.715 million doses of CoronaVac vaccine from Sinovac Biotech.

Ukraine also received 590,850 doses of Comirnaty vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech as part of the COVAX scheme. In addition, 234,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine purchased at public expense have already arrived in Ukraine.

On April 23, Ukraine received 367,200 doses of AstraZeneca-SkBio vaccine produced by South Korea's SK Bioscience, as well as 705,600 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine made in the EU. This latest delivery was made on June 3 as part of the COVAX initiative.
