In Kyrgyzstan, state registration was passed by: Gam-COVID-Vak (“Sputnik V”), “Sputnik Light”, “Konvidetsiya” (manufacturer – NPO Petrovax Pharm). An inactivated Sinopharm vaccine has been imported through humanitarian aid. Head of the pharmacovigilance sector of the Department of Medicines and Medical Devices under the Ministry of Health and Social Development Zhyldyz Zhumagulova said this at a briefing.
According to her, the import and use of vaccines on the territory of Kyrgyzstan is possible with state registration, inclusion in a special list of drugs temporarily allowed for import and medical use without registration (vaccines against COVID-19 are included in it), import through humanitarian aid with emergency situations (if registered in the manufacturing country or the donor country).
“Vaccines against COVID-19 are new vaccines that are potentially created on new technology platforms and have not previously been used to release already registered vaccines. They are licensed based on available safety data from clinical trials. Based on this, monitoring of adverse events and timely response play an important role in the safety of vaccines, ”she said.
