The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said that about 30% of the vaccination certificates in Ukraine are false documents. 
This was reported by Radio Liberty.

“I.e., we not only have a low vaccination coverage, but it is also possible to remove a number of these fake certificates from there. We did a big survey as UNICEF – the numbers are surprisingly high. So I am afraid that if we introduce the ‘force’ method of vaccination, it will only lead to an even greater growth of fake documents,” said the UNICEF medical expert Ekaterina Bulavinov.

According to her, the vaccination coverage against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis is about 50%.

“It’s very low coverage, terribly low. Coverage is also low against hepatitis,” she added.

In Ukraine, since the beginning of the year almost 14,000 people became ill with measles.

As a reminder, earlier the Minister of Healthcare of Ukraine Ulana Suprun stated the need to tighten the responsibility for issuing fake vaccination certificates.
