As of Monday, all sites will be open and there will be no need for appointment. The field vaccination will also begin on Monday, children aged 12-16 can also be vaccinated with the Pfizer jab, which is currently the only vaccine currently approved for this group, noted Health Minister Venko Filipche.
He added that a new variant might appear in a few months that might be even more contagious.
“It is important that people get vaccinated. If we are vaccinated at a higher percentage and we have a certain degree of herd immunity, the situation with the recent British variant will not repeat. One of the possibilities is that the disease might take on an endemic form and that is why the vaccine is the only thing that can protect us,” said Filipche.
