Record number of Covid-19 vaccinations to arrive in Croatia next week

By  Feb 14, 2021

Next week 71,325 doses of Covid-19 vaccine will arrive in Croatia, which is more than the total from the whole of last month.

"Tomorrow, 18,525 doses of vaccine produced by Pfizer and BioNTech will arrive, on Tuesday 16,800 doses of Modern's vaccine and then another 36,000 doses of AstraZeneca - Oxford vaccine," said the director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, Krunoslav Capak. In other words, starting on Monday, a serious number of citizens will be vaccinated every day, which means that in just one week, more than 70,000 citizens could be vaccinated, as many as were vaccinated throughout January.

This is optimistic news considering the problems in the delivery of vaccines last month in all EU countries, including Croatia. The quantities of vaccines of the two manufacturers that first received EMA approval have almost halved since mid-January, and AstraZeneca / Oxford, whose vaccine was approved only 15 days ago, had also announced a smaller delivery. All of this has led to a reduction in vaccination coverage.

This latest news means that the vaccination process in Croatia will finally be significantly accelerated as early as next week.
