“We can’t introduce mandatory vaccination because we said at the beginning that we wouldn’t,” said the Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenkovic, at a press conference today.
Around 52 percent of the adult population in Croatia have been vaccinated against Covid-19. And over the past few weeks the number of new cases have been rising and this week Croatia was ranked as red on the new European Centre for Disease Control Covid map for the European Union.
Plenkovic said today that vaccination against Covid-19 would not be mandatory for anyone and that he believed Croatian citizens were reasonable, wise and informed. And he added that in spite of the rise in infections, Croatia had no plans to tighten up the current Covid restrictions.
