Ukraine will expedite the vaccination against coronavirus (COVID-19) and administer from 5 million to 7 million vaccine shots per month in summer, Ukrainian Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said.
“We are planning to reach the target [from 5 million to 7 million vaccine shots per month] sometime by summer. Yet again, that would require everyone’s compliance with the earlier agreements, and that constitutes a problem,” Stepanov said on the Svoboda Slova program aired by the ICTV television channel on Monday night.
There are few vaccinations on weekends because doctors tasked with administering the vaccine at the first stage have their days off, he said when commenting on the opinion that the vaccination process might take over a decade unless vaccination is expedited.
The minister assured the audience that the number of vaccine shots would grow to 10,000 this week.
