There is a scientific and technical group in Kyrgyzstan that monitors trials of COVID vaccines around the world. A batch of COVID vaccine is planned to be allocated to Kyrgyzstan, but for 20% of the population, Sputnik – Kyrgyzstan reported, quoting head of the Public Health Department of the Ministry of Health, Ainura Akmatova, as saying at a briefing on December 8.

Now two vaccines are undergoing the third and fourth stages – Moderna and Pfiser.
