All Greeks will be provided coronavirus vaccines free of cost once the vaccine has been rolled out, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Friday. the vaccines will most probably be in the country in the first half of 2021, he added.
“The government has from the start treated the vaccine as a public good. For this reason, it will make it freely available, with no exceptions,” he said during a teleconference on the administration’s vaccine strategy..
“We have an obligation to do so. At the same time, [a free vaccine] would underscore our commitment to the protection of public health,” he said.
Mitsotakis said Greece expected to receive more than 25 million doses of the vaccine.
Greece will receive the vaccines within the EU action plan against Covid-19.
