Kikilias: COVID Vaccination Is the Largest Health Project in Greece’s History

ATHENS — Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias and Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis visited on Saturday the mega vaccination centre in Elliniko.

In his statements, Kikilias stressed that the effort made to vaccinate the population "is the largest health project that has ever been organized in the country. It is a comprehensive, collective effort of solidarity and mutual support that unites the vaccination, its organization, its digitization, the new technologies, together with the human factor: the respect shown by the health workers, the doctors, the nurses, the staff, to our fellow citizens who come in order, with organization, without delay to be vaccinated."

He then thanked Kyriakos Pierrakakis for his contribution and valuable assistance, as well as all other institutions, ministries, agencies that have helped in this great effort.

"It is an effort that is now moving rapidly. We will have 1.5 million vaccinations in April and we hope that in this way we will be able to get out of this health crisis and look to the future with optimism. I want to give courage to the Greeks, to tell them to be a little more patient, to observe the health measures and we firmly believe that we will succeed," Kikilias underlined.

On his part, Pierrakakis said that is a huge health and national venture. "It is the largest health project ever done in Greece."

"And what we have found is that the organization, all its parameters, the digital and mainly the physical parameters, how it is carried out, prove that the project is very successful," he stressed.
