17,550 doses of the Somirnaty vaccine against COVID-19 have already been distributed among medical institutions in Kharkiv and the region.
The vaccine was delivered to Ukraine by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) as part of the COVAX international initiative, HOVA reports
“This vaccine can be used both for 1 or 2 vaccinations, as well as for booster and additional vaccination. I would like to remind you that the Ministry of Health recommends that booster vaccinations should be done with mRNA vaccine,” said Maksym Haustov, director of the Department of Health Protection of the Kharkiv OVA.
He also said that the region is provided with a sufficient amount of the CoronaVac vaccine, which is available from Janssen. Kharkiv Oblast is expected to receive the second batch of Somirnaty.
“I remind you that the only effective means of combating the disease is vaccination. Take care of your health and take care of your loved ones,” said Maksym Haustov.
