The European Union and WHO have donated new equipment to the government of Georgia to support the mass COVID-19 vaccination to be launched in the summer.
The country’s healthcare system will receive 72 high quality laptops, 20 tablets, 200 vaccine carriers with 800 icepacks, 300 medical refrigerators with accessories, 300 thermometers, a specialised vaccine-carrier vehicle and other necessary equipment.
Since the onset of the pandemic, the EU and WHO have supported Georgia with the provision of necessary supplies, development of software and mobile applications, training of key personnel involved in vaccinations, monitoring of vaccine efficacy and safety, and development and implementation of a nationwide communication campaign to promote vaccinations and to address vaccine hesitancy.
This assistance is part of a wider support package provided by the EU and Team Europe consisting of GEL 1.5 billion of new and reallocated assistance to help Georgia deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, including support to vulnerable groups and economic recovery.
