According to Health Secretary General Manuel Pafiadachi, about 268,000 children are within the target age and about 170,000 have already been vaccinated.

“Therefore, we need about 100,000 people to complete the immunization schedule for these people. This is an effort we are making and I believe that our goals will be achieved in partnership with the Department of Education. In addition to vaccinating our children and vaccinating young people and adults, there will be another opportunity to complete the vaccination schedule for these people, ”said the head of the folder.
