Vaccination rates continue to boost in Ukraine, primarily due to an increase in the supply of vaccines from manufacturers with which Ukraine has agreements and contracts. This was stressed by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal in his introductory remarks during the Government meeting on June 9.
The Head of Government dwelled on that one of the priority areas for cooperation with other countries is to restore and intensify the tourist flow. Thus, Denys Shmyhal spoke about the documents that Ukrainians will be able to use as confirmation of vaccination for free border crossing and travel.
"The first is the International certification of vaccination. The document is issued after a full cycle of vaccination and will be used to cross the state borders of those countries that will recognize this certificate," the Prime Minister stated.
The second document, according to him, is the so-called "COVID-19 certificates" or "immune passports."
"The "COVID-19 certificate" is still under development and will be put into force after the approval of international requirements of the European Union and the World Health Organization. We tentatively plan to launch it in July. The certificate will be available in paper form in health care facilities, as well as in e-form- through the Diia (Action) app. In addition, the document will contain information not only about vaccination but also about the negative results of PCR tests or recovery after COVID-19 and the presence of antibodies," said the Prime Minister.
