Health Minister calls on family doctors to contact at least 5 patients per day for vaccination

Written by  Jul 10, 2021

The Croatian Minister of Health, Vili Beroš, sent a letter to family doctors across the country inviting them to contact five or more patients every day and invite them to be vaccinated.

"In order to increase the vaccination of citizens who have not yet expressed interest in vaccination, we suggest that you contact 5 or more people a day and invite them to vaccination," he wrote.

The Minister added that the aim was to reach vaccination of 70 percent of the population as soon as possible and thus “prevent the spread of the virus.”

"Given that family doctors have the best insight into the population and given the experience with public calls and received inquiries from citizens, we believe that for the health of our citizens who are older, especially in hot weather, it would be optimal to provide them vaccination in the offices of their chosen family doctor,” said Beroš.
