Health Minister Venko Filipche said that probably a booster dose of vaccine will be needed for all citizens in an interview with Sitel TV.
“We expect the clinical studies conducted by the company Pfizer to be published. According to the indications and announcements, that a third booster dose will most likely be needed for all citizens, but it is still early, we are waiting for the official studies to come out and then to come up with an appropriate recommendation. We have a big difference in different age categories. The total number of vaccinations is 37 percent of the total population, with at least one dose 45-6 percent of citizens and about 55-6 percent of citizens over 40 years. As the age group of citizens grows, so does the scope of vaccination, for example, close to 70 percent of citizens over the age of 70 are vaccinated,” said Filipche.
