Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine for Digitalization Yaroslav Kucher on the air of the Ukraine 24 TV channel announced plans to start online registration for vaccinations for those who do not fall into priority groups from March 1. This can be done through the "Diya" application or through the contact center of the ministry.
After registering in the application, the user will receive confirmation of being included in the waiting queue, and he will receive an invitation for vaccination when the vaccine is available. As the drugs arrive in Ukraine, the ministry plans to establish a notification system for residents of certain regions and certain groups of the population, depending on the region, about the opportunity to sign up for the opportunity to be vaccinated at a specific time in a particular point.
On February 23, the first batch of COVID-19 vaccine was delivered to the country, but this is neither Pfizer nor the Chinese CoronaVac promised by the government, but the Indian-made Covishield drug, developed by the British-Swedish company AstraZenec in cooperation with Oxford University, has not received WHO approval. First of all, vaccinations will be delivered to medical workers and military personnel fighting in the Donbass.
The epidemiological situation in the country remains difficult. For example, in Kiev, according to statistics published by the mayor's office, the number of newly diagnosed cases of coronavirus has grown almost 2.5 times over the course of a day: from 169 to 454.
