“This is the only shipment of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines that is reduced,” said Chief State Health Inspector Ass. Professor Angel Kunchev upon the arrival of a shipment of 18,720 vaccines at Sofia airport.
“If you want more details why this is so, you have to ask the manufacturer. As far as I know the idea is the reconstruction of their production and enhancement of their capacities to meet the needs of counties for even bigger shipments. I am expecting the country to be given compensations with bigger deliveries in the second half of February-March,” Ass. Professor Angel Kunchev explained.
“There is a sufficient number of second doses set aside for the persons who have taken the first vaccine. For all of them there is a second dose and we are only doing new vaccinations when we are sure there is a second dose for each person,” Angel Kunchev said.
