"Get COVID-19 jab, and be safe!" the Ministry of Health encourages citizens to get vaccinated by launching its information campaign.
Doctors who are directly involved in the vaccination process are pushing health workers to take the vaccine by providing them with general recommendations.
"The WHO has authorized the AstraZeneca vaccine, and it meets all strict standards of safety, effectiveness, and quality. Vaccination reduces the risks of catching coronavirus, getting ill, or dying. Vaccination puts an end to the pandemic.
Specialists say the first dose of the vaccine protects against the virus; however, both doses are a must for full immunity. Even in the event of taking both shots, wearing facemasks and keeping a safe social distance are mandatory. Vaccination is scheduled in advance to avoid overcrowded areas.
The UK, EU states, Canada, Austria, and more than 50 other counties worldwide have used the AstraZeneca vaccine for three months. Five million people have already been vaccinated in the EU states and more than 11 million in the UK.
Everyone is entitled to getting the COVID vaccine and responsible for doing so!
Get your COVID-19 jab and protect your life and health! Vaccination keeps you safe!
Let's stop the pandemic together!" the statement by the state agency reads.
Vaccination in Georgia has started today, with the Deputy Head of the NCDC Paata Imnadze, Clinical Director at the Infectious Disease Hospital Marina Ezugbaia, Department Head at Tbilisi Hospital of Infectious Diseases, Marina Endeladze, Head of the Central Republican Hospital Levan Gopodze, Head of the Burn Center Guga Kashibadze, and others having already been vaccinated.
