The vaccination process across not only Croatia but Europe as a whole, with the exception of the United Kingdom which has been doing excellently, has been problematic and far slower than anyone could have expected previously, but it seems things are finally on the up. With infection and death rates still high in Croatia, it hasn’t come a moment too soon.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, acting Zagreb mayor Jelena Pavicic Vukicevic has stated that she would gladly organise everything necessary for the citizens of the Croatian capital to be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus as soon as possible, and noted that talks with healthcare centres were firmly underway and that they would disperse vaccination points throughout Zagreb.
“We’re looking forward to the arrival of all of the doses of the coronavirus vaccines from all manufacturers in the City of Zagreb and indeed across the rest of Croatia. This will enable us all to start living normally again, that is, to return to some of our old habits,” said Jelena Pavicic Vukicevic on Thursday at the Zagreb Fair (Zagrebacki Velesajam), where there is finally a great response and turnout of invited Zagreb residents for vaccination against the new disease.
She called on her fellow citizens to respond to their invitations to come for their immunisation.
The head of the Zagreb City Office for Education, Ivica Lovric, commented that recently, the employees of Zagreb’s schools and kindergartens have been coming to the Zagreb Fair for their vaccinations, he added that more than 40 percent of them want to be vaccinated.
“There are about 6,500 of them on the list who have stated that they want to be vaccinated in this current wave. I hope that over time, that number will increase,” said Lovric.
