KYIV (Reuters) – Ukraine’s state Medical Procurement Agency (MPA) said on Wednesday it cannot accept the first batch of China’s Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine because the supplier did not provide the required documents.

The batch of the vaccine, which Ukraine approved earlier this month, is due to arrive in Ukraine on March 25.
