Petsas: 300,000 doses of the vaccine in Greece in January – Only 150,000 will be vaccinated

Only 300,000 doses of the coronavirus vaccine will be available in Greece in the first month, according to a government spokesman.

“Which means that 150,000 citizens will be vaccinated in January,” government spokesman Stelios Petsas told Parapolitika Fm, as the vaccine will be given in two doses, urging citizens to be especially careful during the holiday season so that there is no resurgence of violence.

Mr. Petsas clarified that “it seems that we will get the vaccines faster, but we will get less”. He described this development as bad news as our country estimated to receive around 1 million doses, but as he stressed, the whole of Europe will get fewer vaccines.

He added that all citizens must abide by the measures and that it is certain that masks, distances and all other security measures will not leave us for several months in 2021.

Also, Mr. Petsas announced tougher measures in regional units where the cases do not subside, or fall slowly or there are resurgences.

Regarding New Year’s Eve, the government spokesman noted that “every family should have a close circle with which to socialize so that there is no spread of the virus in the community.”

Regarding the 80% reduction in rent in January and February, he pointed out that this is a measure to support businesses, while for the Refundable Advance Payment 5 he said that it will start in January.

Finally, Mr. Petsas clarified that “in the special reserve there are 7.5 billion euros to support those affected by the pandemic.”
