“43,000 doses of AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine will be delivered to Georgia on May 6, which will be intended for people who have already received the first dose of AstraZeneca,” Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health, announced.
“Another 43,000 doses of AstraZeneca will be delivered on May 6, which is intended for people who have taken the first dose. Based on today’s data, 25,461 people have been vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine, another 10,000 people have it booked, so I do not think we have a problem with the use of AstraZeneca,” Gamkrelidze noted.
Presently, all three vaccines (AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Sinopharm) are being administered nationwide in 91 facilities with 137 brigades.
Vaccination with the Chinese vaccine Sinopharm started in Georgia from today, May 4.
Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health, was publicly vaccinated with the Sinopharm vaccine.
