In Kazakhstan, the expiration date of the Pfizer vaccine has been extended - changes have been made to the instructions for using the drug. In this regard, the remaining doses can now be used until September and October.

Earlier it was reported that the expiration date of the Pfizer vaccine of the last purchased batch is until the end of July. The Ministry of Health assures that the vaccine is not expired and has not lost quality.

It's all about storage conditions. American manufacturers extended the terms of use of this batch in April - if a strict temperature regime was observed from minus 90 to minus 60 degrees.

At the end of June, more than 1.2 million people received the first component of Pfizer in Kazakhstan. About 1.1 million Kazakhstanis were vaccinated with the second component. In total, according to the latest data, 300 thousand doses of the American drug remain in the country. Against the backdrop of the rise in the number of cases of covid, doctors again urged Kazakhstanis to protect themselves from the virus through vaccination.

“Vaccination and revaccination did not stop with us. There is no vaccine shortage in the country. Pfizer, Vero Cell and our domestic vaccine QazVac. Every citizen must turn on their civic activism and undergo revaccination in order to maintain collective immunity. Vaccinations are carried out in polyclinics and vaccination points,” said the official representative of the Committee for Sanitary and Epidemiological Control of Kazakhstan Yerzhan Baitanaev.
