Who should I sue; I wish they give us something, - Paata Imnadze, Deputy Director of the National Center for Disease Control, told Palitra News, while talking about the suing of COVAX platform.

"On February 3, the COVAX platform published a list of all countries who should receive [the vaccine]. It was a precedent when several Balkan countries formally sued, but the result is still the same as ours," Paata Imnadze said.

A few days ago, the Minister of Health Ekaterine Tikaradze said that Georgia may sue the COVAX platform, as the country has not yet received the vaccine, despite the fact that the money is already transferred.

According to the representatives of the Ministry of Health, Georgia has met all the requirements. Vaccines are expected in late March, however, the exact date is still unknown.

Paata Imnadze says that due to the created situation, "we must look for other ways and works are carried to this direction for a long time."

"The Chinese vaccine could be imported in the country much earlier, but it does not have the WHO authorization. One of the conditions for bringing of the vaccine is the authorization by the WHO," he says, adding that Georgia has very strict legislation in this regard.
