Croatia to donate 210,000 Doses of Vaccines to BiH

The Government of the Republic of Croatia will donate 210,000 doses of coronavirus vaccines to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and another 100,000 to other countries in the region.

Montenegro, Northern Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, but also Kyrgyzstan will receive 20,000 doses each, the Government decided at today's session.

The statement clarified that they will donate vaccines because Croatia currently has a lot of unused doses.

Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic believes that it is better to use the doses than to keep them in warehouses.

"We will, in accordance with our orders, have enough doses for other donations during the year," Plenkovic added.

On May 26th, a bilateral agreement was signed with Croatia and the necessary preconditions were created for the realization of the donation of 30,000 doses of vaccine against COVID-19 from the manufacturer AstraZeneca. 

The agreement was signed by the Minister of Civil Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina Ankica Gudeljevic with Croatia, as well as a three-parity agreement between Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Croatia and
 AstraZeneca. 

The donation of the vaccine to the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina was announced during the recent visit of the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of Croatia, Gordan Grlic Radman, to Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

The Ministry of Civil Affairs is taking the necessary actions to ensure that this donation is realized as soon as possible, it is stated in the press release.
