The director of the Military Medical Academy, Prof. Ventsislav Mutafchiiski, and 11 medical professionals from the hospital are the first Bulgarians to receive a third dose of а Covid-19 vaccine. Unvaccinated citizens are 97% of those hospitalized with the infection. 

"It has been shown that for some time after immunization, the protection decreases. That's why I didn't have any hesitations, as with the first dose, to put a third one," the director of the Military Medical Academy, General Mutafchiyski, wrote in Facebook.
Bulgaria's Ministry of Health has announced that the Expert Council for Supervision of Immunoprophylaxis has approved the voluntary administration of a third dose of vaccine against Covid-19 for 5 at-risk groups of the population. The third dose will be with the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine.
