A group of more than a 100 journalists from North Macedonia are being vaccinated against the coronavirus in the southern Serbian town of Vranje, the Serbian Journalists’ Association (UNS) said on Tuesday.

The 105 journalists are being inoculated with the AstraZeneca vaccine which was secured at the request of the North Macedonia journalists’ association in cooperation with UNS and support from the Serbian President’s cabinet. The journalists were brought to Vranje by bus.

North Macedonia is inoculating health care system staff. It has procured 11,000 doses of vaccine and is having trouble procuring more to launch a mass vaccination of its population.
