Albania Postpones the Launch of the University School Year by a Week

TIRANA, Albania — Albania on Wednesday postponed the launch of the university school year by a week, urging all students to get the vaccine.

Authorities declared next week the “Week of the students’ mass vaccination.” The vaccine is mandatory for education and health staff, including students, or proof of a negative test. Many students have declined to take the shots so far.

Albania reported 617 daily cases and seven deaths on Wednesday. The country is maintaining an overnight curfew, masks in all closed areas and no gatherings of more than 50 people.

About one-third of the 2.8 million population has received two shots of the vaccine. Authorities are considering a booster shot for certain groups who have compromised health.
