At 9 this morning, 2,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine were delivered through the Technical Committee for Health and from the roadblock of Agios Dometios to the T / C side.
The head of the Commission, Jenk Soidan, stated that the installments will be used immediately for people between the ages of 55-65. The second doses of the vaccine will come later, he added.
He noted that they can not vaccinate teachers – as requested by the “Ministry of Education” to open schools in the occupied territories – before completing the vaccination of chronic patients.
Asked about the rapid antigen tests, Mr. Soidan said that as soon as they arrive in Cyprus from the EU, then they will take what is due to them on the Turkish side.
In another question, he said that more vaccines are expected from Turkey, but it is not known when they will come.
In a statement from the “Minister of Health”, Ali Pilli, about the delivery of the 2,000 doses of AstraZeneca, he stated that they were transferred from the roadblock of Agios Dometios to the “pharmaceutical services”.
