The number of citizens in need of vaccination is nearly 3.2 million. The highest priority group includes 2.6 million people. We need 6.4 million doses of vaccines. Effective coordination of efforts with development partners is especially important in countering the spread of coronavirus in Kyrgyzstan, especially on vaccines and health system support issues,» she said.
