Georgia is among 18 countries that will receive the Pfizer vaccine as an exception. Such a statement made today the Deputy Minister of Health Tamar Gabunia, while commenting the first round of allocations published by COVAX.
“By the end of March, we will find out the dates when 29 250 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine enter Georgia. According to the distribution forecast, Georgia will secure 129 600 doses of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine by the end of May.
The number of doses did not dwindle in the recent list. Between 144 000 and 314 000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine were indicated in the initial communication. However, this amount was expected by the end of June.
Georgia was negotiating over 150 000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, but Covax actively demanded its guaranteed jabs. Negotiations are underway with the involvement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This issue will be finalized shortly”, - said Tamar Gabunia.
