In the Czech Republic, vaccination against COVID-19 may be suspended due to lack of doses

The Czech Ministry of Health recommended to suspend the vaccination of the population against coronavirus due to a lack of the drug. The spokesman for the ministry, Barbora Peterova, told the journalists about it.

She explained that the American company Pfizer and the German partner BioNTech are not meeting their obligations to supply vaccines. As a result, the doses of drugs were not enough.

Against this background, the ministry has recommended that over the next two weeks not give people primary vaccinations, but focus only on repeated vaccinations. Peterova stressed that the decision must be made locally.

The country has already suspended registration for those wishing to be vaccinated. So far, only citizens over 80 years old and doctors involved in the first line of the fight against infection can get vaccinated.

The Czech authorities previously noted that technical problems at the Pfizer / BioNTech facilities should be resolved by mid-February.

We will remind, recently the adviser to the Czech Prime Minister on health Roman Primula said that the government is undergoing a tense discussion about the possible purchase of the Russian vaccine “Sputnik V”.
