Health Minister Ekaterine Tikaradze declares that vaccination is not the main problem in the country, as the infection is common even during immunization.

“The main problem is not vaccination in the country, because infections are common even during the immunization process. Today, different countries that have been very successful in vaccination, but the infection still spreads there. The most successful tool to fight the pandemic is self-organization, wearing a mask and keeping the social distance. Immunization is an additional benefit that every person can have and this process started with one of the highest quality vaccines in Georgia," said the Minister of Health.

In addition, Health Minister has stated that mandatory vaccination for medical workers ‘is not planned at this stage.

"We do not consider mandatory vaccination at this stage, because doctors know very well how important the vaccination is. We are waiting for the citizens to make an independent decision", said Ekaterine Tikaradze.
