The president of the Employees of the Hospital, Petros Giakoumelos, in a post referred to the beginning of the vaccinations in the hospital: I, too, as president of the workers, was vaccinated and I recommend all to proceed with their vaccination so that we can start building a wall against the pandemic. We must not forget however, that we must apply the personal protection measures even though we have been vaccinated”.
