Covid: media, Serbia suspends foreigners' access to vaccine

PM Brnabic, we are now focused on Serbian immunization

09 April, 16:45
(ANSA) - BELGRADO, 09 APR - Serbia has temporarily suspended foreigners' access to anti-Covid vaccines. Tanjug news agency reported, by quoting Prime Minister Ana Brnabic. Answering at a press conference a question about why Serbia has suspended foreigners' vaccinations, Brnabic just said that now the vaccine campaign is focused on Serbian citizens' immunization. She did not add any other detail.

Last weekend, Serbia allowed citizens of neighboring countries - Bosnians, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Albanians, Kosovars - to get vaccinated against covid in Belgrade and Nis (southern Serbia), on condition, however, that they had filled in regularly the online booking questionnaire, as provided for Serbian citizens. A questionnaire (on the eUprava portal) written in Serbian language and Cyrillic characters allows reservations for Serbs and foreigners, whether they reside in Serbia or not. According to Belgrade media, over 22,000 foreigners from neighboring Balkan countries came to get vaccinated in Serbia in March. Moreover, Belgrade donated thousands of vaccine doses to these countries - all included, like Serbia itself in the Covax vaccine program - to allow the start of immunization programs for their respective populations.
