Interest in vaccination before autumn is increasing

The number of people turning to get the Covid vaccine has been increasing in recent days. On Wednesday, 9,798 people were vaccinated, an increase of about 2,940 from last week. General practitioners advise vaccinating people against the coronavirus before winter.

On Tuesday, the manufacturer Pfizer/BioNTech sent to the Czech Republic the first delivery of a modified covid-19 vaccine for the latest variants of the omikron virus BA.4 and BA.5. The amount is more than 600 thousand, the same number will come next week.

So far, this vaccine is only available at some vaccination sites, and it is also possible to register for the vaccination in advance. In October, the Ministry of Health expects another 1.5 million doses and in November two million doses of these vaccines.
