February 21, 2021

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic received Sunday morning the shipment of 150,000 AstraZeneca vaccine doses at the Belgrade Airport ‘Nikola Tesla’.

“This required lot of effort and our friends in the United Kingdom and India. I asked (PM) Boris Johnson and other officials in the British government, I am grateful for their support. Let me thank India’s Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, the price for these vaccines was the most favorable. We managed to secure the vaccines at very favorable prices and they will be available to our citizens as of tomorrow,” said Vucic.

He also said Serbia is now the only country next to the United Arab Emirates having at disposal the vaccines of three different producers.

The president also said the vaccination of the population will speed up to reach one million of those who received the first dose and 650,000 of those fully vaccinated by end of February.

“And then in March we will start feeling the benefits (of vaccination),” he added.
