Georgia will secure the first doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in the next two-three weeks, Deputy Health Minister Tamar Gabunia declared.
Axar.az reports that the Georgian National Center for Disease Control and Public Health (NCDC) will pay for the first doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine this week and, consequently, Georgia to gradually receive the jabs, Gabunia noted.
She added that Georgia would purchase the AstraZeneca vaccine via UNICEF and the COVAX Facility.
“UNICEF’s delivery mechanism is experienced. The delivery schedule will be further specified, as we are still working with the COVAX on the issue,” Gabunia said.
Georgia reported 160 coronavirus cases, 409 recoveries, and ten deaths on March 1.
