Ukraine’s health ministry warned that unvaccinated employees in the public sector will be put on unpaid administrative leave starting Monday  if they fail to comply with vaccine requirements.

Made effective on February 1, the policy makes vaccination mandatory for health care workers and employees of local goverment agencies.

To go back to work, such employees will have to get at least one jab.

Medical exemptions remain in place and can be issued after an assesment of doctors.
