The so-called green corridors (walk in vaccination centres) will continue to function over the weekend, and next week new instructions are expected from the caretaker minister of health, Prof. Asen Baltov, Director of Pirogov emergency hospital said for bTV.

In his words the option for making vaccinations available to all should remain open. Almost 46,000 people have already availed themselves of the green corridors – 16,000 of them have received their second dose of vaccine.

Prof. Baltov stated further that the idea is being considered of creating conditions for more GPs to administer Covid-19 vaccines as they would be able to accumulate individuals for vaccination more quickly from their patient lists.

Prof. Asen Baltov predicted that we shall probably have collective immunity by the end of June.
