The Minister of Health, Arben Vitia, speaking about the mass vaccination, said that the goal is to realize up to 500 thousand vaccinations within a month.
According to the minister, up to 8,000 vaccinations are being performed per day after no problems.
“From June 15, when this plan started to be implemented, we have seen that without any problems, from 2,500 to 3,000 that were done earlier in the day, we managed to vaccinate up to 8,000 citizens during the day,” said Vitia , for RTV21.
He warned that next week the amount of raw vaccines purchased by the Government will arrive.
“Next week is expected to come the first contingent of Pfizer vaccines, from the contract we have signed to come to the Republic of Kosovo. “And the whole vaccination plan will be based on the vaccines we now have in stock,” said Minister Vitia.
So far at least 157,338 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
One week ago, a mass vaccination campaign against coronavirus started in Kosovo.
In May, the Kosovo authorities announced that they had signed a contract with the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer, for the purchase of over 1 million doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine.
