Negotiations are underway to import additional doses of Pfizer vaccine - Irakli Gharibashvili

Negotiations are underway in order to import additional doses of Pfizer vaccine. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia.

“We are negotiating quite effectively with vaccine manufacturers. One option of supply goes through COVAX platform and first lots have already been received. The second channel goes through direct interaction with manufacturers. We will be in the position of sharing detailed information on this in a few days together with the Minister of Health.

We are referring to the import of additional dozes from Pfizer in June - July. We are negotiating a million doses. I was personally involved in the process and held a number of phone conversations with a President of Pfizer.

Besides, we are negotiating directly with Chinese vaccine manufacturers at Sinopharm and Sinovac on the supply of additional doses.

Also, new vaccines are being procured from Moderna and Novavax. Thus, we are quite optimistic”, - said Irakli Garibashvili.
