“There will be people who say that they do not believe in these vaccines and do not want to be immunised,” Kunchev said. “There are clear rules in epidemiology that if 60 to 70 per cent of the population is not immunised, then public health is not protected, only the individual who is immunised.”

Health Minister Kostadin Angelov said that a national vaccination plan would be developed by December 3.

Every Bulgarian citizen will have access to the same vaccines that European citizens have access to, Angelov said.

Everyone will sign an informed consent before vaccination.

“Vaccines will be voluntary. Anyone who wants to be vaccinated will have the opportunity to do so. They will be absolutely free of charge,” Angelov said.
