"I think it’s realistic to receive the first doses in January. But that doesn’t mean that all vaccines would arrive as we could expect to receive some of them only in the second half of next year as they are in very different creation stages," the minister told a press conference on Tuesday.

Veryga also underlined that everything would depend on producers and how they would manage to resolve registration and delivery issues, adding that the major part of vaccines could be delivered later.

Lithuania, alongside other EU member states, is taking part in the European Commission's coordinated vaccine procurements and already has plans to acquire several million vaccine dozes from at least three producers.
