The Georgian government has delivered 10,000 doses of extra flu vaccine to Georgia's Russian-occupied region of Abkhazia, announces the Head of the National Center for Disease Control, Amiran Gamkrelidze.
Gamkrelidze said that the number of applications for flu vaccination was not high in Georgia and the country had extra vaccines in stock, which were given to Abkhazia.
We bought 235,000 flu vaccines, but the amount of flu vaccine was much higher, because the private sector had purchased 60,000-70,000 doses. 160,000 doses have been used. We transferred 10,000 doses to Abkhazia. Military staff and risk groups were also vaccinated”, Gamkrelidze said.
He said that teachers are included in the risk groups and they can be vaccinated.
