NCDC head Amiran Gamkrelidze has thanked priest Giorgi who got publicly vaccinated, for setting an example for others.
Mr. Gamkrelidze says that he has known father Giorgi for 25 years and is aware that he supports progressive ideas, is interested in medicine and modern achievements.
''All this is natural as Father Giorgi is the son of famous Georgian doctor and surgeon Mikheil Chachava,'' the NCDC head said.
Father Giorgi at Saint Panteleimon Church is the first religious servant who received AstraZeneca coronavirus jab publicly at Tbilisi Infectious Disease hospital. The priest called upon the public for vaccination.
