The Minister of Health of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko stated that Ukraine may share expired COVID-19 vaccines with other countries.

He told about it on air of one of TV channels, writes LB.ua.

Lyashko noted that the Ministry of Health plans to vaccinate in such a way as to use all doses of the available vaccine.

He also said that if certain batches of the vaccine expire, such vaccines will be withdrawn and disposed of. At the same time, the Minister assured that the Ministry of Health will do everything possible to ensure that vaccines are used in Ukraine.

“If we see that we do not have time to use, we will talk to our international partners about sharing and the vaccine has been used where it can be used,” Lyashko added.

As UNIAN reported, the Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) predicts that at the current rate of vaccination against COVID-19 in Ukraine may not have time to use all doses of vaccines from AstraZeneca until the end of their shelf life. In particular, about 3 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine remain valid until the end of October and the end of November.
