The Deputy Health Minister held a briefing today providing updates regarding the vaccination process in Georgia.
“We had a telephone communication with the representatives of Pfizer and COVAX, during which we discussed the additional conditions to get the Pfizer vaccine.
“We had the opportunity to go through all the stages of importing the Pfizer vaccine into the country, as well as company’s requirements regarding vaccine transportation and delivery sites. We have already sent this information to the Pfizer head office.
“According to preliminary information, the Pfizer vaccine will be delivered in the week of March 22, so we will be able to start the vaccination program by the end of March.
“We also have promising news regarding 229,600 doses of AstraZeneca, which we have to get by the end of May. However, the first part is expected to arrive in the last week of March. First, it will be sent to UNICEF and then to Georgia,” Gabunia said.
