Serbia to start administering third COVID-19 vaccine dose
All vaccinated citizens will be able to receive a third shot 180 days after getting their second dose.
On the eGovernment portal, they will be able to check if they are categorised as individuals for whom a booster vaccine is recommended.
Irrespective of the categorisation, all those who wish to do so can receive the third dose following the expiry of a six-month period after the second dose.
Citizens need not apply for the third dose before being contacted by the eGovernment service.
All citizens can choose their type of booster vaccine, since it is safe and possible to get a different vaccine from the one received in the first two doses.
In a statement, the government said sufficient quantities of all four vaccine types rolled out in Serbia to date – Sinopharm, Sputnik V, Pfizer-Biontech and AstraZeneca – were available at all vaccination points across the country. ■
