The vaccination plan adopted by the government provides for the free vaccination of all adult citizens of this country and determines which groups of citizens have a priority, the minister wrote on Facebook, adding that county public health institutions are responsible for ensuring that the order of vaccination is observed.

“All the cases of out-of-turn vaccination reported by the media deserve the strongest condemnation, especially if some of the citizens have been deprived of their right,” Beroš said.

The Health Ministry will order an inquiry into all these cases and it calls upon all those responsible for vaccination to observe the set priorities, he added.

“All the individuals who took advantage of the right to vaccination to the detriment of others will have to face moral accountability before the Croatian public,” the health minister concluded.

The media have reported that Zagreb University Rector Damir Boras and his wife were vaccinated against COVID-19 out of turn, at a time when care home residents and staff and health workers are a priority.

The head of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, Luka Burilović, confirmed to N1 television on Thursday that he had been vaccinated against coronavirus on 13 January and 4 February. He noted that being a disabled war veteran because of a severe pulmonary condition he belonged to a risk group and did not think he was out of turn.
