“It is important for the security of our country that all tourists who have been vaccinated twice, be additionally tested in Georgia,” stated Georgian Health Minister, Ekaterine Tikaradze, at a briefing of the government administration.
“We should require from tourists to get tested on the territory of Georgia because in this case, we will have more guarantees that we are not dealing with falsified documents. Consequently, the movement of tourists, we believe, will be much safer for our citizens. The Ministry of Health has a wide range of testing centers, so it is important to work with the Ministry of Economy and the Tourism Agency to highlight to tourists that their testing is important and should be controlled by other agencies. It is important for the security of our country that all tourists who have been vaccinated twice, be additionally tested in Georgia,” Tikaradze said.
The Minister of Health also noted that Georgia will receive half a million doses of Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines at the end of the week. Mass vaccinations will be possible from the beginning of next week.
