In response to the request from the Government of Ukraine, the Lithuanian Government has decided to donate another 225 600 pcs of COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen to Ukraine through COVAX facility.
‘Today, as Ukraine has to cope not only with the pandemic challenges but also with the mounting military aggression from Russia, I am happy to have this opportunity to pass the COVID-19 vaccines to the Ukrainian people. Ukraine is planning to give them to its citizens living in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions that have been most affected in almost eight years of war in Eastern Ukraine. Only unity and goodwill can help us to successfully contain the virus’, said Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė.

Lithuania has already shared its vaccines with Latvia, Ukraine, Norway, Moldova, Sakartvelo, Armenia, Tajikistan, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Indonesia.

To date, Lithuania has donated over 1.6 million vaccine doses to partner countries.
