Another Zagreb Vaccination Point Could be Set Up in Eastern Part of City

The Croatian vaccination rollout hasn’t been going entirely to plan over recent months, with delivery and contractual issues aplenty and some people refusing to accept the AstraZeneca vaccine following numerous reports of worrying side effects and doubts surrounding the vaccine for people over a certain age. Things have begun to improve of late, and a second Zagreb vaccination point might work to ease the pressure and better control the flow of people coming to be immunised.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, following problems with getting the desired amount of invited individuals to come to receive their coronavirus vaccine, yesterday, more than 4,500 residents of the Croatian capital received a dose of the Pfizer vaccine, but covid wardens still have their hands full today, warning people to keep their distance and adhere to the epidemiological measures as they wait to receive their vaccines.

Zvonimir Sostar, the director of the Dr. Andrija Stampar Institute in Zagreb will today, as he previously announced on HRT, talk with the Minister of Health Vili Beros about the opening of another mass Zagreb vaccination point in the eastern part of the city.

If all goes to plan, next week, almost 100,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine are set to arrive in Croatia, then 175,000 are due to enter the country every week during the month of May, with 201,240 doses due in the last week.

A total of 809,640 doses or 202,410 per week will arrive in June alone. For these large quantities, which do not include the promised amount of 524,000 doses of AstraZeneca and the announced 100,000 doses of Johnson & Johnson, additional mass vaccination points should be organised.
