TBILISI, 17 Jun – Sputnik. Georgia will have enough coronavirus vaccines in the summer to successfully continue the vaccination process, Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani said.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry, like other departments, is involved in the process of obtaining vaccines by Georgia from various manufacturers. Earlier, the Ministry of Finance said that the country has funds to buy vaccines.

“In the near future, we will have additional vaccines from China again. We also had a communication with the Pfizer executive director with the direct participation of the Prime Minister. Probably, starting from July, it will be possible to receive Pfizer vaccines in Georgia,” Zalkaliani told reporters.

According to him, Georgia was also included in the list of countries that will receive the vaccine from the United States. However, what kind of vaccine Georgia will receive, the Foreign Minister found it difficult to say.

Earlier, the Ministry of Health of Georgia said that in the period from July to October Georgia will receive 3 million 200 thousand doses of vaccines from different companies.

Vaccination against coronavirus in Georgia began on March 15. The government’s goal is to vaccinate 60-70% of the population by the end of the year.

According to the latest data, only 221,156 people have made the coronavirus vaccine in Georgia so far, which is 6% of the country’s population.

Vaccinations in Georgia are carried out with drugs AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Sinopharm and Sinovac, but they entered the country in limited quantities, the government promises new supplies in the summer.
