General Konstantinos Floros, Chief of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff, was vaccinated yesterday.
General Floros' COVID-19 vaccination was made on the same day as Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and chief epidemiologist Sotiris Tsiodras were vaccinated at Attikon hospital.
The first Greek to be vaccinated was Efstathia Kambissiouli, head nurse of the intensive care units at Athens’ Evangelismos hospital.
“All health professionals are being honored and (it) is a recognition of our work and our contribution," she said.
"I hope a new page is turned on today, but we got a lot of way to go, we must adhere to measures and hold fast to our goal and when we are all vaccinated we can take our lives back,” she added.
