Exactly 293 days after the first case of COVID-19 was recorded in Serbia, vaccination against the coronavirus, which has so far claimed more than 1.7 million lives worldwide, has begun.

Today, the Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabić, and the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Darija Kisić Tepavčević, received the first doses of vaccines at the Torlak Institute.

Government officials said they wanted to set an example to encourage the population and show that the vaccine is safe.

“As Prime Minister and as someone who leads the COVID-19 Crisis Response Team, I felt obliged to be the first to receive the vaccine, to show that we believe in it, as well as in our institutions”, said Ana Brnabić.

At the moment we have the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and the vaccines from the Chinese Sinopharm are expected in the near future, as well as certain quantities of the Russian vaccine Sputnik V.

Brnabic, who is the first European Prime Minister to receive the vaccine, pointed out that this day marks the beginning of the end of the coronavirus pandemic in Serbia, but also in Europe and the world.

Although the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, previously announced that a million doses would arrive in Serbia at the end of December, 5,000 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, which is already in use in the United States and Britain.

Meanwhile, European Union countries plan to roll out the vaccine on 27 December.
