The negative evolution of the fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic in Romania has boosted the vaccination campaign
The negative evolution of the fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic in Romania has boosted the vaccination campaign – almost 13,750 people have received, in the last 24 hours, the first dose, or the serum in unique dose, one of the highest numbers in the last months. Vaccination numbers keep rising in recent days but are far behind the record registered in the spring, when more than 60,000 people would get vaccinated daily. Meanwhile, authorities decided to allow the booster dose, as in other countries, because of the more contagious Delta variant spreading. The booster dose can be taken as of Tuesday and can be taken by people who have been vaccinated with the complete scheme more than six months ago. Official data shows that approximately one million people would be eligible to get the booster dose, those who, by the end of March had been vaccinated with two doses. There are some, still, some categories considered a priority to be given the third dose.
The third dose is strongly recommended to people with a high risk of developing severe forms of COVID-19: people aged 65 or older, people with chronical illnesses or residents of medical-social centers.
