Georgia received 29,250 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in the early hours of March 25, procured and delivered by COVAX facility, a United Nations-backed vaccine-sharing scheme, the Ministry of Health reported. The import was delayed earlier in March due to Georgia reportedly failing to meet Pfizer’s indemnification requirements, APA reports citing civil.ge.

According to Deputy Health Minister Tamar Gabunia, the Pfizer vaccine will only be available in four clinics in the capital city of Tbilisi, in one clinic in Kutaisi, and in one in Batumi, given the necessary ultra-cold storage requirements. Vaccination with Pfizer jabs will be available starting March 30.
