The vast majority of people refuse to get the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, noted general practitioners from the coastal city of Varna. Following the information about side effects, people prefer to wait for a Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. 

We still don’t know what to do with those who received a first dose of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, but want a different type for the second shot, Dr. Karolina Zlateva, Deputy Head of the Association of General Practitioners, told Daniela Stoynova from BNR-Varna.
