“Today we have sent a strong message of confidence in medical science, the medical profession, primarily because we were vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine. We will continue to work diligently on vaccinating Croatian citizens so that they could continue living and working with as little risk of infection as possible. Every vaccinated individual contributes to the protection of the population and is definitely a step towards our old normal, and a step closer to a successful tourist season,” Beroš told reporters after the vaccination.
He added that there were still many challenges ahead and that it was important to think about future challenges such as new variants of the virus.
“I believe that with this message we have encouraged citizens to follow us on that path, to curb the epidemic and return to our normal life,” Beroš said.
