So far, 803 176 doses of vaccines against Covid-19 have been administered in Bulgaria, including 26 923 in the past 24 hours – the largest number in a single day since the country began its vaccination campaign on December 27.
According to the national information system’s daily report on April 30, a total of 207 667 people have received a second dose, including 17 132 in the past 24 hours.
The figures come as health authorities across Bulgaria offer “green corridors” for vaccinations for all comers, as the Orthodox Easter holiday period starts. There will be a choice between BioNTech-Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines.
