Currently, more than 14 million doses of vaccines against Covid-19 are available in Ukraine, according to the Deputy Minister of Health, Chief Sanitary Doctor Ihor Kuzin.
Kuzin said that 97% of Ukrainians, who were hospitalized for Covid-19, were not vaccinated.
For the moment, more than 14 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine are available in all regions of Ukraine, and everyone can choose one of three vaccines of different types. If one does not suit you, then there is always a choice. A person cannot have contraindications to all three types of vaccines.

So far, 7.9 million people were vaccinated in Ukraine with at least one dose, and 6.4 million people were fully vaccinated.
Recently, Minister of Culture and Information Policy Oleksandr Tkachenko has called on Ukrainians to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
Tkachenko mentioned a study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which found that unvaccinated people who were earlier infected with COVID-19 were twice as likely to develop COVID-19 again than those who were fully vaccinated. “It’s about assertions that if you have already been infected, there will be enough antibodies. As you can see, they are not always enough,” he said.
The Minister recalled that if 100% of visitors and employees have a green Covid-19 certificate (about the completed course of vaccination), red zone restrictions will not apply to them.
