Belgrade has vaccinated 600,592 people, or 43% of the population, against COVID-19, Deputy Mayor Goran Vesić said on Friday.

“We have the best results in the 65 to 74 population, 72.52% of whom have been vaccinated,” Vesić said, adding that in Belgrade more than 1 million doses of the vaccine had been administered by 29 April.

“Our first goal is to vaccinate half of the adult population in Belgrade,” Vesić said.

Vojvodina Health Secretary Zoran Gojković stated on Friday that pandemic indicators in Serbia remained uncertain and that this was why measures had not been relaxed.

“Estimates say that considering what we have in store in the near future, we are staying at this level for now. The number of newly infected is dropping, but it is still high and we have to be cautious,” Gojković told Pink TV.
