“The country has received 28,000 doses of the “Pfizer” vaccine,” stated Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the National Center for Disease Control.
Gamkrelidze noted the mentioned dose will be divided into two parts and will be enough for 14,000 people. The remaining doses of the vaccine will arrive in Georgia gradually.
The Pfizer vaccine arrived in Georgia late last night. Bookings for Pfizer will start at three o’clock today, and vaccinations will start on July 16.
“This is the first portion of a multimillion-dollar deal, and the second or third portion will gradually arrive in every week in July. Due to the contract, we have to have a million doses of Pfizer during the year. As you know, an additional Pfizer was allocated as part of a donation from the United States, the contract of which is going to be specified these days. It will soon be known how many doses of these vaccines our country will receive and when from the US. At this stage, 28,000 doses have been received, which will be divided into two parts,” said Amiran Gamkrelidze.
