Bulgarian authorities are not excluding the possibility of only letting people who have taken the COVID-19 vaccine into the country, professor and head of the National Vaccination Headquarters, Krassimir Gigov, told the Bulgarian National Radio in an interview.

However, Gigov did not specify when such a measure would take effect or whether it would apply to all foreigners.

Bulgaria, which has confirmed that vaccination in the country will be free and voluntary, is expected to receive its first batch of vaccines on 27,28 and 29 December and should distribute them to front-line workers.
