“Ukraine signed the first contract with the Sinovac company, which is renowned all over the world. The price at which Ukraine buys one dose of vaccine from this manufacturer is UAH 504 (US$17.8). This is the price of this company’s COVID-19 vaccines for the vast majority of nations, and it is affordable, he said.
The minister also noted that the Health Ministry does not have the right to announce the cost of vaccines of some other manufacturers so far due to strict contractual rules regarding non-disclosure of information.
