PM Plenkovic: Vaccine Order Raised, Most Croats to be Vaccinated by End of April

By 15 January 2021

January the 15th, 2021 - PM Plenkovic has announced that the Croatian Government has ordered more of the new coronavirus vaccine and plans to vaccinate the population by the end of April this year. Pfizer's vaccine has been in use since the end of December in Croatia, and mass vaccination will hopefully soon see the end of the pandemic of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, finally declared.

The advent and subsequent approval of several coronavirus vaccines has offered a much-needed light at the end of a very long, very dark tunnel for the vast majority of people, and Croatia only having a small population might finally go in its favour as vaccination is rolled out across the country.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, at a recent Croatian Government session, among other things, PM Plenkovic happily reported on the current course of coronavirus vaccination across the country and announced what the government intends to do in this regard over the next few months.

"As far as the pandemic is concerned, I want to say that after the measures we introduced back at the end of November, along with the great level of responsibility of Croatia's residents, we managed to ensure a better epidemiological picture, Croatia can now boast of the biggest two-week decline in the entire European Union," said PM Plenkovic.

"So far, 38,000 people have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus. We have increased Croatia's vaccine orders from both Pfizer and Moderna. We additionally took a million Moderna vaccines. The Oxford vaccine will be approved on January the 29th, and we have ordered 2.5 million doses from that, too. Large amounts of doses of these vaccines can be expected in February and March. With that in mind, it can be expected that the majority of Croatia's population will be vaccinated by the end of April,'' announced PM Plenkovic.
