Minister of Defence Georgi Panayotov has urged army personnel to get vaccinated against coronavirus.

“This is a virus we need to be fighting with determination. At this stage, the vaccines are the only protection. Now is the time that the Bulgarian army served as an example to society, as it has always done, and choose to support vaccination,” Minister Panayotov states.

Georgi Panayotov goes on to add that Bulgaria is among the first countries in the world to have administered the vaccines, with the help of the army, and in 1928, to have eradicated smallpox.

“At the beginning of last century we were one of the first countries in the world to have started applying vaccines against diphtheria. Bulgaria is again one of the first countries to have applied vaccines against tuberculosis,” Minister Panayotov says.
