Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said on Tuesday that Croatia had reached a turning point in the inoculation of the population against coronavirus, considering the fact that there would be more and more vaccine deliveries.
By the end of June, there will have been over two million doses delivered, said Plenković.
The prime minister and members of the national coronavirus response team held a video conference on Tuesday morning with representatives of Croatian counties on ramping up the administration of Covid-19 vaccines.
"We all concluded that vaccinations are useful and necessary. And that the benefits of the vaccine are far greater than any of the risks they pose. In the name of the entire government, I call on all citizens to seize this opportunity and get vaccinated," said Plenković.
"Now it is a turning point when all those involved are supposed to do their best to make sure that as many people as possible get vaccinated," he added.
During this morning's video conference, the authorities in the counties were informed about the deliveries of vaccine doses.
"We will have at least 300,000 doses available a week, as of next week," he said, and added that "by the end of June Croatia will have been provided with more than two million doses of the Covid vaccines."
"We have created prerequisites for all who would like to be vaccinated to get their doses," Plenković said.
It is now on the counties, and their institutes of public health and the system of general practitioners to provide citizens with vaccines, he added.
