Interest in Vaccination in Split Has Climbed 200%

ZAGREB, 8 Nov, 2021 - Interest in getting vaccinated increased in the City of Split over this weekend after a surge in COVID numbers forced the authorities to step up anti-epidemic measures.

The head of the Split-Dalmatia County office of public health, Željka Karin, told Hina on Monday, that over the weekend, as many as 1,800 people were given a shot against coronavirus.

In the first two hours since the start of inoculation on Monday morning, as many as 410 people got vaccinated in the Spaladium Arena hall, and two thirds of them got a first jab.

There are several locations in the county where residents can get a shot against coronavirus. Karin said that latest high COVID numbers were probably the reason why Split residents decided to get immunised.

Some of those freshly vaccinated said that they had decided to get a jab after they had been provided with enough information about vaccines and some said that they would like to have a normal life and that COVID certificates would make it possible.
