Turkey will be donating 100,000 vaccines to Bulgaria in order to ensure that the preventative procedures will b uphold according to the schedule outlined by the Healthcare Ministry.

The announcement was made by healthcare Minister Petar Moskov at a news conference Wednesday.

In return, Bulgaria will be supplying Turkey with anti-tuberculosis vaccines.

In the minister's words, the number will be more than enough to cover the local demand until the end of the year.

Bulgaria was facing a vaccination crisis because the two companies producing and distributing vaccines in the country did not apply for the tender.
