All 20 persons were older than 65 and patients with chronic conditions.

Four-hundred doses of the AstraZeneca and 200 of the Moderna vaccine arrived at the Šibenik-Knin County Public Health Institute yesterday and were distributed to local health centres.

Local epidemiologist Ankica Parat Baljkas said the Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines were all “quality vaccines,” adding that the AstraZeneca vaccine offered “60 to 70% protection from getting sick, but in 100% of cases it protects from serious illness and death, as do all other vaccines.”

Until now Croats have been inoculated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

The first batch of vaccines developed by Moderna arrived in Croatia in mid-January, while Zagreb took over the first 9,750 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on 26 December.
