Due to some restriction in the administering of the vaccine against Covid-19, more than 1,300,000 vials of vaccine have been discarded. In an interview with the BNR, caretaker Minister of Health Asen Medzhidiev said that the condition set down for GPs to vaccinate a certain number of people, as well as the requirement for the advance registration of patients has probably led to lower numbers of people wanting to be vaccinated. That is why these restrictions will be scrapped, mobile groups are being set up for the smaller towns and villages who will carry out additional awareness-raising campaigns. It will now be possible to open a vial of vaccine when there are fewer than 5 people wishing to be vaccinated.

Minister Medzhidiev said further that the quarantine period will be shortened for the vaccinated and for the unvaccinated, as most people no longer spread the virus after the 5th-6th day.
