The Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili, has stated that intensive negotiations are underway with vaccine manufacturers and partner countries to mobilize additional doses of the vaccine as soon as possible.
“In a telephone conversation with Albert Bourla, Chairman and CEO of Pfizer, we discussed the issue of delivering an additional million doses of Pfizer. We talked about the logistical and technical readiness to receive additional doses of Pfizer in Georgia, including the ultra-cold chain system, as well as the vaccination process. I mentioned that the Pfizer vaccine is highly reliable in Georgia. We have focused on the National Vaccination Plan, which aims to vaccinate 60% of the population by the end of the year, and the special importance of mobilizing appropriate doses of the vaccine in a timely manner,” the statement reads.
The Prime Minister thanked the Chairman and CEO of Pfizer for his cooperation and noted he hopes that Georgia will receive additional doses of Pfizer as soon as possible as a result of the negotiations.
