Updated vaccines against Omicron variants expect approval in August, says Health Minister

The approval of the updated vaccines against COVID-19 in relation with the variant Omicron is expected in August, Greece’s Health Minister Thanos Plevris said on Friday.

Speaking to Skai FM, Plevris said that the new vaccines will protect from the infection, the illness and the serious illness, according to information from the pharmaceutical companies.

He added that these vaccines will also cover the variants 4 and 5 and for these reason Greece has transferred the largest part of its order for vaccines to the last quarter of the year.

On the course of the pandemic, the Health Minister said that the coronavirus wave that prevailed in June and July has flattened and is declining while a further drop in infections is expected in the next weeks.

However, he said that a new wave is expected in September. But he stressed that “we have antivirus medicines, large vaccination coverage and more better therapeutic protocols.”

  1. “Speaking to Skai FM, Plevris said that the new vaccines will protect from the infection, the illness and the serious illness, according to information from the pharmaceutical companies.”

    Pharmaceutical companies are foxies guarding the chicken houses.

    “However, he said that a new wave is expected in September. But he stressed that “we have antivirus medicines, large vaccination coverage and more better therapeutic protocols.”

    OMG – Plevris is clearly deluded.

  2. Expect more human rights violations, violence, authoritarian decrees, and 100s of 1000s of euros in fines for an already struggling populace. And, of course, a whitewash of the swathes of incriminating evidence about the side effects …

  3. SERIOUSLY? We know that some pharmaceutical companies made billions with this, while doing everything to have governments ban treatments, causing millions of deaths that could have been avoided. How long will this charade continue? Because if we follow blindly politicians who have also a lot to gain from all this, it will never end.
