Public immunization campaign will start from July, we must make 10,000-15,000 COVID-jabs per day, - Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the National Center for Disease Control, told "Formula". According to him, after July Georgia should "meet the targets set by the national plan” within six months.

In addition, Amiran Gamkrelidze notes, that negotiations are currently underway with two major manufacturers regarding the supply of vaccines.

"This is Novavax, an American company whose vaccine will appear on the market in June-July, and negotiations are also underway with Pfizer on supply of 1 million doses of COVID-vaccine," Gamkrelidze said.

According to him, negations on purchase agreements with Novavax have a more positive outcome. As for "Pfizer", it is not yet known when the vaccine will be shipped. NCDC Head notes, that Pfizer COVID- vaccine most likely will be shipped from July.
