Today, MEPs will discuss in plenary whether to give a mandate to the government to study the possibility of buying vaccines against Covid-19, approved for use in countries outside the European Union. The proposal for this was approved yesterday by the parliamentary health committee.
MPs from the Bulgarian Socialist Party left the discussion on the grounds that their proposal to provide access of Bulgarian citizens specifically to the Russian Sputnik V vaccine was not present in the decision, BNR reported.
