The COVAX alliance has published a timesheet of countries which will be supplied with COVID-19 vaccines during March-May period. One of these countries is also Kosovo which is expected to get 100,800 Astra Zeneca vaccines. Kosovo is the only country in the region which has not started vaccination.

COVAX has published the COVID-19 vaccines supply timeline for February-March and April-May, but delivery depends on several factors including approval of the beneficiaries on the use of the vaccine, availability of the product, and other criteria such as vaccination planning and agreements on compensation, authorizations of import etc.

Despite promises that the first vaccines will arrive in February Kosovo authorities have failed to start vaccination process, lagging countries of the region. The number of new COVID-19 cases and deaths is increasing after Kosovo held on 14 February early election with parties organising rallies all over Kosovo. /GazetaExpress/
