Zaev: Over 300 Thousand Vaccines to Arrive This Month

Prime Minister Zoran Zaev expects that this month around 300 thousand vaccines from different manufacturers will arrive in the country, ensuring smooth continuation of the vaccination process. Zaev says that at the moment, according to the number of vaccines that are available in the country, the capacities of the vaccination points are not fully used. When that happens, said Zaev, there is an opportunity to open new vaccination points in the capital and other areas. He says the first shipment of Pfizer vaccines is expected to arrive, for which he says, the state has a contract for 800,000 vaccines, as well as the second shipment through the COVAX mechanism, which should also arrive later this month. According to Zaev, 200 thousand Chinese vaccines planned for this month are expected to arrive, as well as a significant amount of Sputnik V, for which there is an agreement for 200 thousand doses.
