Kosovo is the only country in Europe that has not sealed a deal to purchase COVID-19 vaccines.

Until now, the vaccination campaign has relied only on doses supplied as donations from the European Union and the WHO, while the ministry of health recently declared they are close to finalizing an agreement for the purchase of vaccines.

“The Ministry of Health is in the process of signing a contract for the purchase of the necessary vaccines with various companies. The process is at an advanced stage with some of them and near finalization,”, said the political advisor at the health ministry, however without giving further details citing confidentiality reasons.

The government of Kosovo has allocated a fund of €40 million for the purchase of COVID-19 vaccines and the management of the pandemic.
