March 15, 2021

On 13 March, a first shipment of 43,200 vaccines arrived in Georgia through the COVAX Facility.

“The next step is to start vaccinating. Here I am also proud that the EU and WHO are supporting the government with training, advice, and logistic support to roll out the vaccines as quickly and efficiently as possible to those in need,” said Carl Hartzell, Head of the EU Delegation to Georgia.

The Ambassador reminded that since the start of the pandemic, the EU and Team Europe have been Georgia’s strongest supporters, providing financial assistance both to government anti-covid measures, and also directly to the health, social, and private sectors. This is one of the highest EU support packages per capita in the world, and demonstrates the solidarity of the EU with Georgians,” added Hartzell.
