Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili announced on July 2 that one million doses of China-made Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines against COVID-19 arrived in Georgia.
“We are ready to begin the mass vaccination process from Monday,” said the Prime Minister.
PM Garibashvili also said Georgian authorities expect additional half-million doses of Sinopharm and half-million doses of Sinovac in the coming weeks. He added that Pfizer will begin supplying step-by-step one million doses of its vaccine starting in July.
Georgia began COVID vaccination on March 15. As of July 2, 266 161 citizens received at least one dose of vaccine, while 104,196 of them received full vaccination. Georgian authorities plan to immunize approximately 60% of the population over 18 — 1.7 million citizens — by the end of 2021.
