Currently in Ukraine, the inoculation campaign for COVID-19 employs four vaccines: AstraZeneca (Covishield, SKBio), Comirnaty (Pfizer/BioNTech), CoronaVac (Sinovac Biotech), and Moderna.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, the Ukrainian government on July 21 launched the fifth stage of the vaccination campaign for COVID-19, offering jabs to anyone aged 18 and over.

On July 18, a total of 2 million doses of the U.S.-produced Moderna vaccine arrived in Ukraine. The bulk was provided to Ukraine as part of the global COVAX Facility.

As of July 21, a total of 2,778,377 people underwent vaccination in Ukraine, of whom 1,501,291 received both doses.
