Individuals in Georgia will be able to receive Pfizer coronavirus vaccines not only in hospitals, but also in outpatient facilities, Deputy Georgian Health Minister Tamar Gabunia stated earlier today. 

She said that seven outpatient facilities (poliklinikas) have already expressed readiness to launch the vaccination process with Pfizer which requires special temperature control.

Gabunia said that the government is discussing a plan on how to vaccinate people in villages on site. 

She said that village residents will be able to receive Chinese Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines in local polyclinics and mobile brigades will also be used in the process. 

Georgia, which has already received 500,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine as a gift from the US government, will receive an additional 186,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine tomorrow according to an agreement signed with the producer.
