All residents of the country will be able to get vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine, which has come to be called the “vaccine for the elites” in Ukraine. This was stated by the chief sanitary doctor of Ukraine Igor Kuzin, reports Telegram-channel “Strana.ua”.
According to him, the drug will appear in the country at the end of July. It will be available to all categories of citizens with the beginning of the fifth stage of vaccination. Anyone will be able to get vaccinated at the vaccination centers, where they plan to distribute the German-American vaccine.
Earlier it was reported that vaccination with the Pfizer drug was available only to a limited circle of people, in particular, the parliament members and government officials of different levels. Because of this, Pfizer has come to be known in the community as the “vaccine for the elite.”
On June 10, it became known that the United States would pay for 500 million doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine and donate them to nearly 100 countries. In particular, 900 thousand doses will be presented to Ukraine within the framework of the COVAX program.
Vaccination against COVID-19 in the country began on February 24. It is carried out with Pfizer / BioNTech, AstraZeneca, CoronaVac from the Chinese company Sinovac Biotech and Covishield of Indian origin. The last two were not approved by all member states of the European Union, as a result of which the number of Ukrainians wishing to be vaccinated began to decrease.
