Greece has set a record for the number of people vaccinated against Covid-19, with more than 6 million people since the start of the vaccination campaign, Health Secretary Marios Themistokleous said in a statement.
At the same time, he stressed the fact that the country can increase the capacity of the vaccination campaign at any time, if they will have more vaccines. Speaking about vaccinations on the islands, he said that “the islands are a strategic advantage for the country and that is why the government started full vaccination of the islands for business or even strategic reasons.
On 69 islands with less than 10,000 inhabitants, the government aims to vaccinate the population by at least 80%.
“In the 19 largest islands, except Crete, the situation has improved significantly due to the vaccination campaign,” said Marios Themistokleous.
Greece also plans to vaccinate the 25-29 and 18-24 age groups. Vaccination of the 25-29 age group is expected to begin next week, following receipts from Johnson% Johnson and Pfizer.
