Minister of Health Zlatibor Loncar has held a meeting with members of the National Coordination Team for Immunization against Coronavirus, at which a detailed vaccination plan was analysed, according to priorities, for this week.
According to the plan, based on the vaccination priorities, healthcare workers will be vaccinated this week, as well as users and employees in social welfare institutions, primarily gerontology centers.
19,500 more doses of vaccines from the manufacturers Pfizer and Biontech arrived in Torlak.
State Secretary of the Ministry of Health, Mirsad Djerlek, previously said that it was planned to vaccinate around 11,000 healthcare workers and users of gerontology centres this week.
Djerlek told Tanjug that a detailed immunization plan had been made for this week. In the future, he said, a detailed immunization plan would be made on a weekly or ten-day basis.
This week, vaccinations will be performed every day except on Christmas, including weekends.
“We plan to vaccinate about 11,000 people by the end of the week, with half of the vaccines being intended for healthcare workers, and half for gerontology centers and social welfare institutions,” said Djerlek.
