Vucic: I'll get coronavirus vaccine when we have one, or two million vaccinated citizens
Then, he said, he will have a moral right to do so
The Serbian president said that he would get vaccinated against coronavirus once there are one or two million vaccinated citizens in Serbia.
"When we exceed the number of one million or two (million) citizens of Serbia, then I will also be vaccinated. I reckon that I am in a group that can wait to get vaccinated," President Vucic said on Tuesday, replying to journalists.
Then, as he said, he will have a moral right to do so.
The president also said that 500,000 Chinese vaccines will arrive in Serbia on Wednesday, along with 88,000 more Pfizer vaccines by the end of February, and soon, AstraZeneca's.
"What is the most important news is how and in what way we are acquiring the vaccines, because they represent life today. By the end of February, 88,000 Pfizer vaccines will arrive in Serbia, and new doses of Chinese vaccines will arrive tomorrow (Wednesday)," the president said.
He said that 50,000 Russian vaccines arrived early on Tuesday, while another 15,000 Pfizer vaccines will arrive in 15 days, to be used for revaccination, in addition to 150,000 AstraZeneca-produced doses by February 20.
He also thanked friends from Britain and India with whom the AstraZenec vaccine deal was negotiated, and these are not the shipments Serbia will definitely get through Covax.
"Another 500,000 Chinese vaccines will arrive tomorrow afternoon, and by the end of the month we will have a total of 2 million doses of vaccines to be used to vaccinate a million citizens," the president said after an online summit initiated by China.
