A vaccine against coronavirus will be produced in Kharkiv
The group of pharmaceutical companies Lekhim will launch in Kharkiv, in 2022, a CoronaVac vaccine production, as reported by the press service of the Kharkiv City Council.
The plant will produce the CoronaVac vaccine of the Chinese company Sinovac Biotech. In 2021, the "Lekhim" group became the official supplier of this vaccine in Ukraine.
This is a significant project. We do not know what the situation will be in a month or two with a pandemic. And the fact that the Kharkiv enterprise will produce a vaccine and invest about € 25-30 million in production is excellent.Igor Terekhov, Secretary of the Kharkiv City Council
