He assessed that in two weeks Serbia will have 1.8 million revaccinated citizens, and voiced hope that we will be able to speed up the vaccination process considerably as soon as we procure a considerably greater amount of vaccines, which is expected to take place by the end of April.
Specifically, another 211,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine will arrive in Serbia on Monday, 50,000 of the second component of Sputnik V arrived yesterday and the same amount is expected tomorrow.
In addition, the delivery of another 100,000 of the first component of Sputnik V is expected on Monday or Tuesday, and the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine is expected to arrive by the end of April, the Serbian President said and underlined that these are important things that mean life, not only for us, but also for the entire region.
