“Herd immunity requires 80 percent of vaccinated people and we are far from this for the time being. Therefore, the Ministry, the Government, the EU Delegation, UNICEF have all urged and campaigned for people to get vaccinated,” said Health Minister VenkoFilipche on Tuesday.
The Ministry of Health said Tuesday that 27.5 percent of the country’s population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
