I recommend that to everyone and urge everyone to follow suit... There are over 1,100,000 Romanian citizens, healthcare workers and more who fall into this category and who can get vaccinated with the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine," said Cseke.
He added that as of Tuesday morning, about 12,000 people had booked for a third dose on the COVID-19 immunisation platform.
"As of this morning, on the platform where the third dose can be booked, about 12,000 people have booked an appointment for the vaccination. Our piece of advice and suggestion is for people who have not yet got vaccinated to get vaccinated," said the minister, Agerpres informs.
