Pfizer confirms that Georgia will receive more than 1 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.
As the company explains, the negotiations with the Georgian government are over, and they are now concluding an agreement.
"Pfizer is pleased to announce that part of the negotiations with the Government of Georgia on the supply of more than one million doses of BNT162b2 vaccine against SARS-CoV2 is completed. The company is moving to the part of concluding an agreement with the Government of Georgia," the response provided by the American multinational pharmaceutical company to the "Business Formula" reveals.
In the correspondence, the company does not specify when Georgia will receive the vaccine and at what price. Pfizer's senior media relations manager says some details of the deal will remain confidential after the negotiations are completed.
The Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Gharibashvili, announced at a government session on May 17 that Georgia would probably receive one million Pfizer doses in the summer.
"We are negotiating and talking about the introduction of additional Pfizer vaccines in the summer, around June-July," said Irakli Gharibashvili.
Georgia received 29,250 doses of Pfizer through the COVAX platform in March.
