Chairwoman of the National Vaccinations Committee Maria Theorodirou analyzed the reasons why citizens are reluctant to get a jab.
She named the reasons as:
  • fear of vaccination side-effects – These are minimal, she said
  • hope for a medicine against Covid-19
  • belief that people with chronic diseases should not be vaccinated – also these people should get a jab, she added
Theodoridou stressed that the Delta variant will mostly hit young people who although they will not get seriously ill, they can transmit the Covid-19 to the members of their family and their environment.
She urged for the vaccination of the youth.
She stressed that those in ICUs are people who have not been vaccinated.
