Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said on Tuesday that Serbia has secured more than a million doses of coronavirus vaccine so far and has secured more than six million more doses.

She told a meeting of the state leadership and the government vaccination team that a total of 1,054,950 doses of vaccine had been delivered and that the government made advance payments for another six million doses. She said the new inoculation tracking system could monitor everything from the moment the vaccines arrive to the moment that the entire population is inoculated. “The challenge lies in administering the vaccines, vaccinating as many people as possible. This system allows us to monitor everything,” she said.

Brnabic said that mass vaccination is starting on Tuesday with the police, military and other security services getting inoculated first. She said that goal is to vaccinate as many people as possible as soon as possible to achieve collective immunity in the shortest possible time. She appealed to the public to register for vaccination.
