Serbia's Health Secretary Mirsad Djerlek said that the Chinese coronavirus vaccine which arrived in Serbia on Saturday is awaiting approval by the Serbian Drug Agency, adding that the vaccine is good and that he believes it will be approved.
He said that by Saturday at 8 pm, some 22,000 citizens of Serbia had been vaccinated and that some 280,000 citizens had applied for the vaccination. They were recommended to accept the first vaccine available, he noted.
“Next week we’re stepping up the inoculation,” Djerlek said, adding that teachers and journalists will be added to the priority group.
The State Secretary believes it is good that Serbia is the only country that has three vaccines from the three strongest countries in the world, and announced that in addition to the Chinese and Sputnik vaccines, another 20,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine will arrive in Serbia on Monday.
