Serbia donated 100,000 doses of vaccine to Czech Republic


Today Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić escorted a plane with 100,620 doses of Pfizer BioNTech vaccine to the Czech Republic at Belgrade airport.

Ambassador Kuchta addressed the media at Nikola Tesla Airport.

“Serbia has always been our partner, it has always been close to us and in the times when we were sick and today we have again the proof that we are a fraternal people. This is felt by the citizens of the Czech Republic and, I hope, by the citizens of Serbia. This donation is a big, big gift, ”Kuchta said.

He added that there are not enough vaccines in the Czech Republic, that they have capacities, but no vaccines.

“The aid comes at a time when many people want to be vaccinated before the summer holidays and everyone to feel safe and to continue a normal life,” Ambassador Kuchta said.

“I think we will never forget this generous gesture and this friendship,” he said.

The Ambassador also said he hoped that Serbia and the Czech Republic would continue their friendly cooperation and underlined the good personal contacts between the Presidents of Serbia and the Czech Republic.

“After a good visit by President Vučić to the Czech Republic in April this year, we are keeping our promise today and we are sending aid to the Czech Republic with 100,620 Pfizer BioNTech vaccines,” Prime Minister Brnabić stressed.

“We send them our best wishes, to be able to defeat the coronavirus as quickly as possible, so that we can all continue to lead a normal life, an economy, mutual visits and travel together in Europe”, said the Serbian Prime Minister . She pointed out that in a human sense, the most important thing is being able to help your friends and partners.

Asked by journalists about vaccination in Serbia, the Prime Minister said that 2,533,844 citizens have been vaccinated so far, specifically around 47% of the total adult population. “2,055,471, or more precisely 38 percent of the total population, received two doses of the vaccine,” Brnabić said.

She added that according to Israel’s experience, a total of 56% of citizens should be vaccinated to relax the measures. “I would like everyone who can be vaccinated to do so. The goal we have is to vaccinate 50 percent of the population with at least the first dose by June 21, ”said Ana Brnabić.
