The second batch, with 1170 doses, of the Pfizer vaccine was given to the Turkish side through the bi-communal Technical Committee for health, at the roadblock of Agios Dometios.
The first batch of 1080 installments was delivered last Monday, January 18, in the presence of the then two heads of the Technical Committee, Leonida Amulet and Jenk Soidan.
The white van, accompanied by two patrol cars to the checkpoint of the Republic, at the roadblock of Agios Dometios, transported the two boxes of vaccines to the checkpoint and returned.
The doses of the Pfizer vaccine will be used to vaccinate people over the age of 65, according to the vaccination program on the T / C side, which has started in the occupied areas using the appointment method.
It is noted that this vaccine requires storage at -70 degrees Celsius and because there is no such transport vehicle in Cyprus, batches are delivered to the Turkish Cypriot side for immediate use within five days, depending on the quantities arriving in the Republic, from the EU.
