Vaccination program extended to include 30-39 year olds

The Government vaccination platform (www.embolio.gov.gr) opened for the 55-59 year old age group earlier this week and there were 138,000 bookings over the first two days.

Greece now plans to start using the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine from May 5th, after Europe’s drug regulator backed its use.  The vaccination platform will open for those in the age group 30-39 on April 27th, for innoculation with the AstraZeneca vaccine, announced Marios Themistokleous, secretary general in charge of vaccinations.

To speed up the process, vaccinations will be done also on weekends and will be available at private clinics as well.
