The US Government gifted Georgia three minus 80-degree refrigerators needed to store vaccines. The refrigerators were installed at the National Center for Disease Control.
Deputy Head of the US Mission in Georgia, Rian Harker Harris, stated in an interview with Channel One: “I am happy to hand over three freezers to the National Center for Disease Control. This will help Georgia in the process of vaccine preparation and administration. They will improve the National Center for Disease Control’s system for vaccine storage, cold chain management, and immunization.
This donation is part of the US European Command’s more than $1 million assistance to Georgia in the fight against coronavirus. The US Embassy continues to support Georgia in its fight against the pandemic and to help the country improve its health care system.”
