January 10, local time, Albanian Prime Minister Rama announced through social media that the vaccination of the country against the novel coronavirus will begin on January 11.
But he has not revealed more details.
Some local media commented that the information released by Rama seemed to be relatively sudden, because Albanian officials had previously said that the COVID-19 vaccination would begin in the third week of this month.
So far, the public and the media have not received news that the first vaccines have arrived in Albania.
According to the introduction, Albania’s first batch of 500,000 doses of vaccine will be prioritized by medical staff, people over 75 years old, teachers and police.
