Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenković, spoke today at the Government session about the vaccination situation across the country.
“First, we are in a situation where we have at least 46.8 percent of adults vaccinated, 39 percent have been vaccinated with two doses, which is not enough. A much more contagious delta strain is spreading through Europe. In countries that are well vaccinated, there is a situation that, regardless of the increase in the number of infected, they do not have a significant increase in hospitalizations, and this is important to note,” said Plenković.
He added that “The risk of infection is higher in those who have not been vaccinated, for every 44 non-vaccinated infected people one will die. I urge the chronically ill and the elderly to be vaccinated. Since the onset of the pandemic, 8,230 people have died from or with Covid, and more than 92 percent were over 60 years of age. Vaccines are plentiful and anyone can be vaccinated.”
“We will enable all Croatian citizens, regardless of whether they have health insurance, to get vaccinated. Croats from Bosnia and Herzegovina or from any part of the world can come here and get vaccinated. We have so many doses of vaccine available that we will vaccinate anyone who wants it, it will be our contribution to curbing the pandemic,” the Prime Minister concluded.
