During a working trip to the Zakarpattia region, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal got acquainted with the activities of the Vaccination Center in Uzhhorod.

The Head of Government inspected the progress of the vaccination process in the institution. According to the Prime Minister, the center has vaccines from three manufacturers.

“Vaccination is the most effective way to control COVID-19. We need to increase the rate of vaccination, as it saves lives and health. All vaccines available in Ukraine are safe and effective. Today, 99% of people in hospitals are unvaccinated. Vaccinated people get sick very rarely or have a mild form of the disease. That is why I urge people to go to the nearest vaccination points and protect themselves and their families,” said the Prime Minister.

So far, more than 11.9 million people in Ukraine have been vaccinated, of which 8.4 million are fully vaccinated. Last week, more than 1.6 million people were vaccinated in Ukraine.
