Vaccines against COVID-19 are medicines aimed at preventing new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 diseases by inducing an immune response of the body.

The current pandemic of COVID-19 is a global crisis with enormous negative impact on human health, social and economic life.

COVID-19 can cause serious illnesses with still unknown long-term consequences for people of any age. Some cases of diseases can end in a fatal outcome.

Safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19 are needed to protect public health, especially healthcare professionals and vulnerable groups such as the elderly or those suffering from chronic diseases.

Last updated: 08 07 2021

Since the virus is new, there is currently not enough knowledge of how long immunity will remain after vaccination, and it is also unclear whether regular revaccination will be required.

Last updated: 08 07 2021

Viruses usually mutate (the genetic material of the virus changes), but mutations do not necessarily affect the effectiveness of the vaccine against the virus.

Some vaccines against viral diseases remain effective many years after their creation and provide long-term protection.

On the other hand, with diseases such as influenza, the strains of the virus change so often and so much that the composition of the vaccine needs to be updated annually in order to make it effective.

The scientific community and regulatory authorities will monitor whether the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is changing over time and, if so, whether vaccines can protect people from infection.

Each municipality has a vaccination coordinator — a municipal doctor or another administration employee, who will coordinate the vaccination process in a specific municipality and the personal health care institutions that will organize vaccination of priority groups.

The appointed coordinators will organize vaccination against coronavirus in medical institutions located on the territory of their municipalities. To ensure smooth vaccination of the population, Ministry of Health experts will work closely with the coordinators.

  4. BioNTech & Pfizer
  5. CureVac
  6. Moderna

Vaccines are delivered by air or land transport from the manufacturer to the warehouses of the Health Emergency Centre (ESSC) and transported from there to medical institutions that carry out vaccination.

Vaccines shall be transported using refrigeration equipment capable of ensuring “cold chain” support for the quantities of vaccines delivered. The supplier must ensure the traceability of the temperature regime during the entire transport.

Some vaccines should be stored at a temperature of at least -75 degrees. For their storage, the ESSC purchased two ultra-low temperature freezers. For other vaccines, that require a temperature of 2-8 degrees, the ESSC shall have a refrigerating chamber adapted to store the medicinal products.
