Ukraine allowed a second booster dose and vaccination of children against COVID-19
The Ministry of Health has approved an order introducing changes in the vaccination system against the coronavirus disease COVID-19. From now on, a second booster dose is allowed for all adults if 4 months have passed since the first booster dose. It is also allowed to vaccinate children over 5 years old.
"So that as many people as possible can protect themselves from hospitalization and death as a result of COVID-19, we allow a second dose for everyone, but we especially advise people with chronic diseases and people aged 60+ to do it", - stressed the chief state sanitary doctor Ihor Kuzin.
New vaccination schemes:
• CoronoVac can be used as a booster shot after other vaccines. That is, after the basic course of vaccinations with one dose of Janssen vaccine or two doses of CoronaVac or Pfizer vaccines;
• The minimum time between the basic (primary) course of vaccination and the booster dose has been reduced. If previously it was possible to do a booster 6 months after the primary vaccination, now - after 5 months;
• The second booster vaccination is given 4 months after the first booster vaccination to adults from the risk group of a severe course of COVID-19;
• It is allowed to vaccinate children aged 5-11 years with the Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine with parental permission.
As you know, earlier in Ukraine, vaccination of children aged 12 and over was allowed.
Almost 5 million CoronaVac vaccines, 400,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine, and 30,000 doses of the Janssen vaccine are currently available in Ukraine for adults.
