Mobile healthcare teams will administer vaccinations at beaches and squares on the island of Crete, Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias announced on Wednesday during his visit to Heraklio.
Τhe next phase of the vaccination campaign through at-home visits, which will allow the vaccination of people who either live in remote areas or are unable to get to vaccination centres, or those that had not yet made up their minds to get vaccinated and now wish to do so, will start on July 6 in Crete, the minister said.
Starting on July 6 there will be vaccinations by mobile health ministry teams throughout the country, in cooperation with municipalities and communities, which must draw up lists of those who have not had the vaccination and want to get one.
“Crete is a pioneer and should be a pioneer in vaccination as well,” the health minister said, who linked the vaccination and the wall of immunity that will be created with tourism and the need to protect the tourist season, which means much for the local economy.
“Our goal is to defend the good of public health and to give degrees of freedom to society and at the same time to support economic activity, businesses and employees. It is our obligation after 15 difficult months,” the minister added.
