More Than 1M Serbs Have Been Fully Vaccinated

BELGRADE, Serbia — Serbian authorities say more than 1 million people in the Balkan country have been fully vaccinated.

The state Serbian RTS television is quoting the government as saying the threshold was reached on Tuesday. It was not clear how many more people have received only the first dose.

The country of 7 million people has had vaccination drives, primarily with Sinopharm vaccines, followed by Pfizer, Sputnik V and AstraZeneca.

Last weekend, Serbia vaccinated some 22,000 people from the Western Balkan region as most other nations face shortages and late starts of their vaccination programs.

However, Serbia is facing a surge in new infections and hospitalizations. More than 5,000 people have tested positive in the past 24 hours and 39 have died.

Nearly 600,000 cases and more than 5,270 deaths have been reported since the start of the pandemic.
