Kyrgyzstan has very little access to vaccines. It began receiving vaccine doses in June 2021. So, Poland decided to donate vaccines to it so it can start vaccinating its people. United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) also urged the world to help vulnerable children of people. The slow speed of vaccination has increased the concerns of authorities amid increasing cases of delta strain in Kyrgyzstan.
The sent 55 thousand vaccines by the government of Poland reached Kyrgyzstan on 13 October 2021. The flight containing vaccines landed in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. It becomes the second country after Uzbekistan to receive vaccines from Poland.
The two countries enjoy good relations. They have a commitment to strengthen their bilateral relations. The two countries also have an intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation. The vaccine diplomacy initiated by Poland will help the two states to expand their relations.
