KYIV, Dec 31 – The supply of the COVID-19 vaccine, the contract for which Ukraine has signed with the Chinese company Sinovac Biotech, will start immediately after the vaccine registration, approximately at the end of January, President Volodymyr Zelensky said.
"When the vaccine will be supplied? As soon as possible. People will receive it only after official registration. Now almost all vaccines are going through the stage of legal legalization in their native jurisdictions. But vaccines are being contracted already at this stage, because there is a large queue and high hopes for their effectiveness. Registration is already possible at the beginning of January, either in the country of origin, or in one of the countries of Europe or in the United States. Registration should leave no doubt. This is another fact. Therefore, it is quite possible to get the vaccine already this winter. As soon as possible," Zelensky wrote on his Telegram channel on Thursday.
