Greece to vaccinate over-60s by May

 

Greek Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias said that Greece will soon reach the 1 million vaccination mark, which is a source of hope, because the more people vaccinated, the faster the pressure on the health system will subside and return to normal.


He estimated that by the end of March, Greece will have 1,750,000 vaccinations, and all Greeks over 60 years old will be vaccinated by May. 

 

“We are also making progress in vulnerable groups. I think it is obvious that the vaccine dose in March will be much higher than the vaccine dose in February and January, and the vaccine dose in April, May and June will be even higher. “He continued. 

In the most recent 24-hour reporting period, Greece recorded 2,353 new COVID-19 cases. This brings the total number of cases to 194,582. 

 

The country’s pandemic death toll is 6,557. The median age of all patients was 79 years, and 95.7% of the deceased had underlying diseases and/or were 70 years or older.
