100 thousand doses of Chinese Sinovac vaccine have arrived this afternoon in our country. The landing of the plane was welcomed by Ministers Belinda Balluku, Ogerta Manastirliu and Arben Ahmetaj.
Manastirliu said that in two weeks they will receive another 100 thousand vaccines to continue the vaccination campaign in order to carry out 500 thousand vaccinations by May. While emphasizing that they will carry out all procedures to continue vaccination that was delayed by 48 hours due to the protest of air traffic controllers.
'The unprecedented event that happened yesterday jeopardized the plan of mass vaccination that has started and was expected yesterday the arrival of the second shipment of 100 thousand doses of vaccines. Thanks to major efforts, we managed to reduce the 100,000 Sinovac vaccines in Albania. It was from this delay that our plan was postponed for 48 hours. Imagine what would have happened if these major efforts had not been made as it is known what a great struggle is made to secure the vaccine when a state is reluctant or unable to get it, then another country that is waiting gets it.
What has happened is that we have managed to bring the vaccines in a timely manner and continue our vaccination plan. We need the time needed to complete all the procedures to proceed in the coming days with the opening of the +65 and +60 age group bandage. We have managed to get 192 thousand vaccines from Sinovac in just 2 weeks, ie on the 25th, and after two weeks we have 100 thousand vaccines that serve the vaccination of the population and in an extraordinary effort to carry out 500 thousand vaccinations by May. "- said the Minister of Health.
