The sudden interest of Bulgarians in vaccines is forced

During the weekends, in the big regional cities in the country, new vaccination points were opened, in the service of the citizens, who do not have the opportunity to do it during the working days. According to a BNR survey, many of those wishing to be vaccinated flocked to medical teams for forced immunization, rather than to reduce the risk of infection and serious illness. 

Despite the assurances of the caretaker Prime Minister Stefan Yanev that the introduction of the green certificate is not intended to force Bulgarians to be immunized, many of them did so for fear of losing their jobs. 
The main motive of the health authorities for the introduction of the certificate was the increased number of patients and the overload of the health system, as well as to avoid the full closure of restaurants, cultural institutions and educational institutions.
