Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias stated on Thursday that any adult in Greece that wishes to get vaccinated will be able to do so by June 30, 2021, in an interview with SKAI radio.
Kikilias said that 114,873 citizens belonging to 30-39 age group and 21,704 citizens aged between 40 and 44 have made a vaccination appointment while 10,252 citizens between 30 and 39 have already got the first dose of the vaccine.
“We will reach up to 100,000 vaccinations every day as of May 5,” Kikilias said, and revealed that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has taken steps to provide a benefit for those working in the health sector once already and will do so again.
According to Kikilias, technical discussions are underway on arranging the vaccination at home for citizens that can’t move about using the “simplest” vaccines, for example the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. “We will reach a decision and announce it very soon. The specific operation will be horizontal for the whole country”.
