Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Tuesday that Croatia had reached the turning point in the inoculation of the population against coronavirus, considering the fact that there would be more and more vaccine deliveries.

By the end of June, there will have been over two million doses, according to Plenkovic who added that on Tuesday morning he held an online meeting with representatives of Croatian counties on ramping up the administration of Covid-19 vaccines.

“Now it is a turning point when all those involved are supposed to do their best to make sure that as many people as possible get vaccinated,” Plenkovic said.

During this morning’s video conference, the authorities in the counties were informed about the deliveries of vaccine doses.

“We will have at least 300,000 doses available a week, as of next week,” he said, and added that “by the end of June Croatia will have been provided with more than two million doses of the Covid vaccines.”

“We have created prerequisites for all who would like to be vaccinated to get their doses,” Plenkovic said.

It is now on the counties, and their institutes of public health and the system of general practitioners to provide citizens with vaccines, he added.

He finds it a good results if up to 2.3 million Croatians get vaccinated.

Opposition copies headlines and articles from websites

Commenting on the Opposition’s motion for a no-confidence vote in Health Minister Vili Beros, Plenkovic said that his cabinet would respond to this motion within a deadline. When it comes to the contents of the motion, Plenkovic sais that “it is more or less a copy of what has been disseminated by web portals and in headlines.”

“The opposition does not seem creative,” he said.

Plenkovic added that he would hold talks with President Zoran Milanovic when prerequisites are met for that, adding that they have not yet been fulfilled.
