« As for vaccines, we are talking about Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines. The Chinese vaccine does not have enough informational material and reliability for this period, so the Ministry of Health at this stage does not categorically consider the introduction of the Chinese vaccine, » Tikaradze explained.
She noted that Georgia received confirmation from the COVAX platform for the supply of Pfizer vaccine for medical personnel. According to Tikaradze, intensive preparations for vaccination are already underway.
Recall, on January 12, the Brazilian Institute of Butantan clarified the data on the effectiveness of the vaccine against the coronavirus of the Chinese company Sinovac, which Ukraine wants to purchase. According to the university, the overall vaccine efficacy was around 50.4%.
Health Minister Maxim Stepanov said that if the effectiveness of the Chinese vaccine against coronavirus is less than 70%, the manufacturing company will compensate Ukraine for all the funds spent on its purchase.
