Greek President Visits the New Vaccination Center in Elliniko

ATHENS — Vaccination is the only solution available to all to return to normalcy, Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Wednesday, during a visit to the vaccination center of Elliniko, south of Athens.

Sakellaropoulou was given a tour of the center, which is opening on Thursday along with another 23 such centers. She was welcomed by Deputy Civil Protection Minister, the Greek National Defense Chief of Staff, the Primary Health Secretary General and the Mayor of Elliniko-Argyroupoli.

"The collaboration of the Armed Forces and the Citizen Protection Ministry provides this impressive achievement," the president said during a tour. "The pandemic continues, and vaccinations are at this point the only solution provided to all to return to normalcy. It's very important that our fellow-citizens get vaccinated the soonest possible, especially as they have expressed their intention to do so," she added.
