COVID-19 vaccinated vaccine pandemic.

A 103-year-old woman from the Cretan village of Stamni was vaccinated for COVID-19.

A total of 42 vaccinations were performed in the Municipality of Hersonissos, of which 17 were vaccinated at home.

"We are optimistic that tomorrow in Moho there will be even more interest," said the Mayor of Hersonissos, Giannis Segkos.

"The vaccine is our only ticket to return to normalcy, especially in our region where our economy is based on the sensitive tourism product, which we must definitely preserve.

"Of course, our first concern is the health of ourselves and our fellow human beings, that is why we trust the scientific community and we are vaccinated.

"We are at the disposal of the Health District of Crete (Ministry of Health) to contribute where and how we can with our municipal services, in order to ensure the smooth development of the process."

On Saturday, vaccinations will continue from the mobile vaccination units at the Mohos Regional Clinic.

It is reminded that all citizens over the age of 18 have the right to participate in the vaccination, regardless of the area in which they live, provided that they have not yet received the first dose of the vaccine.

Also, those interested should have their police issued ID card with them and declare their AMKA.
