Gerapetritis: Vaccine is the “passport” to a better future

“The prime minister and all of us have asked and urged the citizens to get vaccinated as soon as possible in order to create an immunity shield for themselves and for society as a whole,” said State Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis to radio Alpha 98.9 on Wednesday, adding that the vaccine was the “passport” to a better future.

He said the turnout among 30 to 39-year-olds to the vaccination centres was excellent and noted that “the vaccine is the ‘passport’ for our salvation and our recovery and everyone needs to understand this, even those that are scaremongering”.
Gerapetritis noted that the vaccinations performed in Greece have reached 3.0 million and that by the end of May “we estimate that we will have reached 5.0 million, an ambitious target but we are optimistic”.

Commenting the vaccination avoidance, he said that “unfortunately is a phenomenon that causes very serious collateral problems for society”.
