Serbia Delivers 4,680 COVID-19 Pfizer Vaccines to Macedonia

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic officially handed over to PM Zoran Zaev a donation of 4,680 COVID-19 vaccines of the company Pfizer at a ceremony at the Tabanovce border-crossing between Macedonia and Serbia. This is the first part of the entire donation of 8,000 COVID-19 vaccines of Pfizer that Serbia decided to donate to Macedonia. PM Zaev said that this is a true act of friendship and support while Macedonia waits for the direct procurements of vaccines to be delivered. “This pandemic that has taken over the world has really helped to find within us humanity and solidarity with our friends and neighbours. I am very happy that we can finally start the immunisation of our citizens, thanks to our friendly neighbours in Serbia,” Zaev said. Serbian president Vucic said that the previous handover was postponed due to procedures insisted upon by Pfizer for proper transport and handling of the vaccines. “A friend in need is a friend indeed. I am very happy that we can help the start of immunisation process in North Macedonia against COVID-19. I hope this amount will be enough for vaccination of the medical workers, and I also hope that very soon your other procurements will arrive to your country,” Vucic said.
