The Minister of Health, Ekaterine Tikaradze, has issued an order that vaccination with “Pfizer” is to be permitted in Georgia for those 16 years and over.
People from 16 years of age and older can now receive a Pfizer vaccination, consisting of two injections at least 21 days apart.
28,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine arrived in Georgia on July 14, while vaccinating with Pfizer started 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.
