And they follow:

  • On Saturday, April 24, the age group 50-54 years
  • On Holy Tuesday 27 April the age group 30-39 but for now only with the available vaccines of AstraZeneca. Anyone who does not wish to be vaccinated with this vaccine should wait for the age group to open later.
  • In the coming days there will be announcements for the opening of the platform for the ages 45-49 and 40-44. Unconfirmed reports indicate that they may have opened by Easter.

According to the Secretary General of the Ministry of Health, Marios Themistokleous, on May 5, the vaccinations with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will start, which were suspended due to 6 cases of thrombosis that were registered in the USA. The official decision of the National Vaccination Committee is expected in the coming days, which will be similar to the instructions of the European Medicines Agency (Coreper). It is recalled that Coreper after a meeting gave the green light for the administration of the vaccine, assessing that the benefits far outweigh the rare complications.

Vaccination rates per age group announced by the secretary general Marios Themistocleous are as follows:

85+ years: 61% have received even the first dose
80-84 years: 61% have received at least the first dose

70-74 years: 50% take even the first dose
65-69 years: 27% take even the first dose
