Minister of Health Dr. Stoycho Katsarov has called for reliable information about the number of vaccinated residents and employees of social institutions because of the ongoing epidemic outbreaks in such institutions, the press center of the Ministry of Health has reported. According to the Minister vaccination coverage in social homes is low - just about 7,000 staff members and 10,000 social service users have received a first vaccine dose. Dr. Stoycho Katsarov also says that Regional Health Inspectorates should control the observance of anti-epidemic measures in social institutions in the country.
