“This is the most important thing for us to get more vaccinations for the month of June, because we have reached the stage where we are likely to have to announce some ads in July or earlier in order to vaccinate people,” Babish said.
According to him, people need to understand that vaccines are safe and that they lead to a more comfortable life. “Because the vaccinations will allow them to enter everywhere without any problems. Those who have not been vaccinated will have to be tested,” the prime minister added.
According to him, the European Commission should also consider whether a pan-European campaign to support vaccination should be undertaken. Babish added, “It seems that the younger the age, the less interest in vaccination.”
He also said that the Czechs support the issuance of patents for vaccines against cancer, which will be discussed by European Union presidents and prime ministers on Friday evening. France, Italy and Spain, for example, are backed by a hundred countries around the world, including the United States, but Germany in particular is skeptical.
Health care professionals in the Czech Republic have administered 3.5 million doses of the vaccine since last December, and more than a million people have completed the Coronavirus vaccination. This week, 70,000 people were vaccinated every day, most of them on Thursdays, the second highest number from Wednesday, when 78,500 people received the vaccine, according to updated data from the ministry.
