Another 22,808 appointments available today - Cyprus ranks 3rd in the EU in vaccinations

The Vaccination Portal opens today at 8 in the morning, with 22,808 appointments, in the context of the implementation of the National Vaccination Plan for COVID-19, for arranging appointments at the Vaccination Centers that operate in all provinces. Priority for making an appointment will be given to people aged 67 and over.

As announced by the Ministry of Health, as of Sunday, March 7, 99,275 vaccinations were performed, of which 70,534 are vaccinations with the first dose and 28,741 concern people who received both doses and completed their vaccination. At the same time, the first dose of the vaccine was given to 1,277 people in vulnerable groups. The rate of vaccination of people at increased risk of serious disease by COVID-19 increases in the coming days, with the aim of covering, at least with the first dose, about 30,000 people by the end of the month.

According to the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC), Cyprus has vaccinated 9.2% of the population aged 18 and over with the first dose and is in the 3rd place of the European countries in terms of vaccination coverage.

At the same time, according to the data published by the website OurWorldInData, Cyprus remains in the first places among the countries of the European Union in terms of the administration of at least one dose of vaccines, with an average of 11.42 doses per 100 people (data until March 5 ). At the same time, Cyprus has completed to a very high degree its main goal of ensuring the protection, through vaccination, of the elderly over 75 years of age, who have an increased chance of serious illness and death. At the same time, following the ECDC recommendations, Cyprus has reached the European Union target of vaccinating at least 80% of health professionals by March.

Cyprus continues vaccinations on the basis of the available licensed vaccines it receives on a weekly basis from Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca. It is expected that within a week the European Medicines Agency will evaluate the application of Johnson & Johnson for the licensing of its vaccine, which is a single dose.
