Mass vaccination against coronavirus begins in Mongolia

Mass vaccination of the population against coronavirus has started in Mongolia today. The first to take root in the country was the head of government, Luvsannamsrain Oyun-Erdene, reports the MONTSAME agency.

All citizens from 16-18 years of age will be vaccinated. Employees working in situations of increased risk of infection will be vaccinated first.

By July, the Mongolian authorities plan to carry out a large-scale immunization of almost two million adult citizens of the 3.3 million population.

Four vaccines will be used for universal vaccination: Russian Sputnik V, Chinese Sinopharm, as well as drugs from Pfizer and AstraZeneca.

Earlier it became known that the vaccine of the British-Swedish company AstraZeneca was registered in Ukraine.

Deliveries of 2.2 to 3.7 million doses of vaccine are expected in the first-second quarter. The other day, the first batch of 500 thousand doses was shipped to the country from a manufacturer in India.
