The Armenian government has commissioned 600,000 doses of coronavirus vaccines from World Health Organization-backed COVAX Facility and hopes to receive their first batch in February. They will be enough to vaccinate 300,000 people making up roughly 10 percent of Armenia’s population. According to Gayane Sahakyan, the deputy director of the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention, medical and social workers, seniors and people suffering from chronic diseases will be the first to get vaccine shots free of charge. “It is expected that the manufacturer will deliver it to COVAX in February or March.”
