The flu shot will be available in pharmacies

Ukrainians will be able to get vaccinated against flu in pharmacies.

As the Ministry of Health reports on Facebook, the Cabinet of Ministers adopted a corresponding resolution, Ukrinform reports.

"This is an established practice in the EU countries and the USA, which will make vaccination more convenient, and therefore even closer and more accessible. Before the service can operate in Ukraine, pharmacies need to obtain a license to practice medicine. To do this, the point must ensure the availability of a special first aid kit and other equipment; pharmacists undergo training in vaccine safety, rules of organization and technique of vaccinations, and provision of medical care in emergency conditions,” the message says.

It is noted that the government decision comes into force in three months after its publication.

During this time, as the Ministry of Health added, the regulatory framework will be changed to ensure the implementation of the project, consultations will be held and a verified list of business entities that will express a desire to obtain a license and carry out vaccination by pharmaceutical workers.

Pharmacies will be able to vaccinate against seasonal flu in the next epidemic season of 2024/25.

As Ukrinform reported, &quot ;Medical procurement of Ukraine” delivered to the regions 800 thousand doses of vaccine against diphtheria and tetanus, which were centrally purchased last year by order of the Ministry of Health.
