“As a doctor, I can say that we have high hopes for the Uzbek-Chinese vaccine ZF-UZ-VAC 2001,” Doniyor Mirazimov, director of the Specialized Infectious Diseases Hospital No. 2 in the Zangiota district of Tashkent region, said in an interview with Kun.uz.

Nurmat Otabekov earlier noted that vaccination in Uzbekistan may begin on April 5, not on April 1 as was previously planned. This is due to the fact that medical workers were on holiday for a couple of days during Nawruz. Vaccination will begin in large cities and regional centers.

At the moment, the third phase of clinical trials of the Uzbek-Chinese vaccine ZF-UZ-VAC 2001 is underway in Uzbekistan. 

To date, about seven thousand people have been vaccinated in the country.
