Until 30/06, any adult can be vaccinated – What the Minister of Health stated.

Until 30/6, any adult who wishes can be vaccinated, stressed the Minister of Health Vassilis Kikilias to SKAI 100.3.

Vassilis Kikilias noted that almost 115 thousand (114,873) citizens aged 30-39 and 22 thousand (21,706) citizens aged 40-44 have already made appointments for vaccination. Already over 10 thousand (10,252) citizens 30-39 have had the first dose of their vaccine.

Regarding the statement of Alexis Tsipras about the “clearing” of the AstraZeneca vaccine. Mr. Kikilias clarified that there are no second category citizens nor are there second category vaccines in our country. The minister described the official opposition leader’s statement as unfortunate, noting that he would await a corrective statement.

The Minister of Health announced that technical discussions are underway for the vaccination program at home, for people who cannot move.  With an easier vaccine, such as that of Johnson & Johnson. He stressed that this business will be horizontal for the whole country. He noted that we will get to the point of doing 100 thousand vaccinations a day.

Mr. Kikilias stated that the Prime Minister is expected to announce bonuses for the health workers, in due time. Asked by a listener if he would later be able to choose the vaccine he wants to be vaccinated, he said there is no such prospect.
