He underlined that intensive preparations were underway to organise the vaccination operation, noting that this will be the first time that such a huge number of people are vaccinated in such a short space of time.

"We have made a plan that will depend on when the vaccines arrive and the whole process begins. This is a very crucial phase," he stressed.
