According to Bayramly, vaccination is the most radical and surefire way to fight a pandemic.
“The latest scientific researches confirm this. All vaccines used by us are effective and safe. Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca, and Sinovac drugs are WHO approved. Documents were submitted for approval of another vaccine. The approval of these drugs is a guarantee of their safety,” he said.
“Of course, we started with the Sinovac vaccine, based on the results of the third phase of clinical trials conducted in countries around the world, including in fraternal Turkey. At a later stage, vaccination should cover all groups of the population. I call on our citizens to take an active part in this process,” added the chairman.
