According to Paata Imnadze, Deputy Head of the NCDC of Georgia, the falling number of cases has resulted in a shrinking number of citizens willing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Imnadze said that the number of people getting their jabs was the highest when the country had more coronavirus patients than ever. ''You know, we had 60,000 coronavirus patients, and the vaccination rate was highest back then. As the number of daily cases fell, unfortunately, the vaccination rate has reduced. This is very sad fact,'' Paata Imnadze told TV Pirveli.
Per the 21 September NCDC data, 13,962 people were vaccinated in Georgia. A total of 1,686,412 vaccines were administered in the country on 22 September. Georgia has 33.% or 956,417 citizens who have so far taken their first doses and 25.6% or 729,995 people having already received both doses.
Georgia recorded 2016 new coronavirus cases, 43 deaths, and 2,024 recoveries in the past 24 hours.
