The State Budget will ensure funding for the purchase of vaccines in accordance with the roadmap, while the local budget will allocate funds to organise the implementation of ỷ vaccination in the locality in addition to aid, sponsorship, support of domestic and foreign organisations and individuals, and other lawful capital sources or voluntary payment of organisations and individuals,
