Amiran Gamkrelidze, director of the National Center for Disease Control, stated it was planned to establish large vaccine areas in four major cities of Georgia – Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Batumi, and Rustavi.
Gamkrelidze notes that the country plans to start mass vaccination in July, adding that the country is expected to receive more than 3 million doses of the vaccine in October. It will be necessary to add spaces for vaccination.
“In four big cities of Georgia – Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Batumi, and Rustavi, we have to establish large spaces. At least three or four in Tbilisi, one in each of the other cities. We are not talking about tents, we are talking about larger spaces.
It is not a secret that we are actively working with Expo Georgia on the use of their pavilions, as well as Hualing Center on the use of their areas, several sports facilities with large halls and malls so that intensive vaccinations are available to everyone from July, both by pre-booking and direct row,” said Amiran Gamkrelidze.
