Health Minister Kikilias pays visit to Ippokratio hospital vaccination center

Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias paid a visit on Sunday to the coronavirus vaccination center at the ‘Ippokratio’ General Hospital of Athens, as people who missed their appointments due to the snowstorm last week came in to get the shots.

“Despite the fact Sunday is not a day to be vaccinated, today we are doing so for our fellow citizens who missed their appointments due to the weather,” the minister said, while adding that inoculations will resume on schedule this coming week at National Health System hospitals, the Mega Center, and other centers as well.

He also confirmed that the number of vaccinations done so far, whether for the first installment or the second, are nearing 700,000.
