“Production of vaccines in Azerbaijan does not seen possible,” said today Yagut Garayeva, head of the department of TABIB at the meeting dedicated to issues of vaccination against SARS-COV-2 of Public Supervision Board of the Fund for Support to Fight against Coronavirus, APA reports.

Y. Garayeva said the purchase of vaccine from abroad may be in two forms: “This is about the purchase of vaccine based on bilateral negotiations with production companies and multilateral platform. The main purpose of the COVAX platform is to accelerate the production of vaccines in the fight against COVID-19 and to create fair and equal access for all countries. In our case, we don’t resort to direct negotiations with producer companies. But the negative feature of this is that no opportunity of choosing a vaccine is given. But the vaccines offered to countries will be the vaccines that have passed the third clinical trial phase. In such a case, we may order vaccines that would encompass 20 percent of the population”.
