1 million doses of Pfizer will arrive in a month or maximum in a month and a half - Irakli Garibashvili

Several days ago we received half a million doses of Pfizer vaccine. It is the US support and I wish to once again thank the USA and President Biden personally for this gift. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia.

“In addition, million doses of Pfizer have been ordered directly from the producer and the process of supply has already been started and is in progress. In total, we will have 3 million doses of COVID vaccine, out of which 2 million is already in the country and 1 million doses will arrive in a month or maximum in a month and a half. It will be supplied in phases, every week-end. I wish to once again urge the population and once again explain the importance of vaccination.

A lot of questions are asked about the need for immunization. Main answer and argument, which I wish to share with our population, is that a lethal outcome - which is the most painful result for us - is practically impossible after vaccination. Thus, I wish to once again urge everyone to get vaccinated and to safeguard the life and health of our own, our parents, our children and loved ones.

Wide-scale disinformation is spread about vaccines in general. I wish to urge the population to rely and trust scientists and science, rather than thousands of lies, gossips and rumors spread via social media”, - said Irakli Garibashvili.
