Greece Opens Vaccination Appointments for Three Specific Age Groups

ATHENS — Health Secretary General for Primary Health Care Marios Themistokleous provided details about the age groups that will be able to start booking their vaccination appointments during Orthodox Holy Week, speaking at the live briefing on Monday.

The online booking platform for citizens aged 30-39 will open on April 27 (Good Tuesday), for those aged 40-44 on April 29 (Good Thursday), and for the 45 to 49 year-olds on May 1 (Good Saturday).

Updating reporters on the latest figures in the unfolding national vaccinations program, the health official said some 2,870,000 inoculations have been carried out in Greece so far, with 2,025,000 citizens having received one dose of a vaccine (19.3 pct of population), while 845,000 citizens have been administered both doses of a vaccine (8 pct of population).

Johnson & Johnson's single dose vaccine will be incorporated into scheduled vaccinations on May 5, he noted.


Two doctors in northern Greece - one for a second time - were convicted of negligent manslaughter over the May 2017 death of a 24-year-old man from complications following surgery but will serve no jail time.
