Tce, riot police and anti-terror squads in an operations carried out “in strict secrecy,” as media claimed.
Secrecy? HA! Each step of the vaccines transfer, delivery and storage was closely monitored by the Civil Protection as well as dozens of cameramen and photo-reporters who were invited to cover the – quote – “historic moment.”
The vaccines are stored in special refrigerators placed in special areas that meet the specifications for the storage of pharmaceutical products. The warehouse is in a “secret” place, that is in the small village of Kryoneri, East Attica, as all media reported.
Their distribution to reference hospitals in Athens, Thessaloniki and other Greek cities and vaccinations centers is to start on Saturday.
Front line healthcare workers, residents and staff of care homes and 45 government officials are the first to be vaccinated.
The first inoculations will take place on December 27, in the reference hospitals of Evangelismos, Sotiria, Atticon, Thriasio and the Asclepieion of Voula in Athens.
Also on Sunday, President Katerina Sakellaropoulou and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis will receive the jab in a symbolic move to convince citizens to join the operation called “Freedom.”
ON Monday, vaccines will be sent to the reference hospitals of Larissa, Thessaloniki’s AHEPA, Ioannina and Patras, and inoculation will start for the medical staff on December 29.
By December 30, Greece will reportedly receive another 83,850 doses of the Pfizer-BioΝTech. By end of January another 429,000 doses and another 333,450 doses by the end of February.
By the end of March, Greece will have received 1,265,550 doses from Pfizer-BioNTech.
PS Thank goodness , we have the vaccines, as their arrival could turn into a superspreader event.
I can’t help but to think the PR staging was kind of silly….
