Czech Republic hits 58,928 COVID-19 vaccine doses in a day for a new record

Czech Republic hits 58,928 COVID-19 vaccine doses in a day for a new record - Czech Points

Medical workers in the Czech Republic administered 58,928 doses of covid vaccine on Thursday. This is the most since the start of vaccination in December. This follows from the data of the Ministry of Health. However, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (ANO) said in mid-March that the goal after Easter is to vaccinate 100,000 people a day.

So far, 1,971,079 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, 663,000 people have been vaccinated with both required doses.

The capacities of vaccination centers and GP surgeries are sufficient to vaccinate 100,000 people a day, but there are few vaccines. It is now being vaccinated in the Czech Republic with vaccines from Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca. The first deliveries from Johnson & Johnson should also arrive in the second half of April, which, unlike substances from other manufacturers, only need to be given in one dose.
