Pierrakakis: Vaccinations So Far at 6.8 Million

ATHENS — The vaccination platform for the 18-24 age group will open up in a few days, while the number of first and second doses of Covid-19 vaccinations given has reached 6.8 million, Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis said on Monday in an interview with SKAI TV. "We are running very fast and the process is progressing step by step," he said.

The minister, commenting on the discussion underway regarding the privileges of those who have been vaccinated and obtained a digital vaccination certificate, said that the vaccinations and the legislative process must first be completed.

"There are some prerequisites. The first condition is that everyone who wants to be vaccinated is able to do it, that the system is open for all. The second has to do with the legislation." On the digital employment card, he said that this will be ready the following year.


ATHENS – In the aftermath of the latest violations of the Prespa Agreement that established ‘North Macedonia’ as the official name of Greece’s northern neighbor – its newly elected president insists she has a personal right to call her country ‘Macedonia’, contrary to the ‘erga omnes’ provision of the agreement which calls for ‘North Macedonia’ to be used in all contexts – the West is once again struggling to understand what the latest Balkan dispute is all about.
