Bosnia and Herzegovina could receive vaccines against coronavirus in the second quarter of 2021, the Federal Ministry of Health announced. Unlike the countries of the region, which have already procured the first doses of vaccines by direct agreement with the producers, our country is waiting for the delivery of vaccines. Bosnia and Herzegovina will procure vaccines against coronavirus through COVAX, ie the Instrument for Global Access to Vaccines against COVID-19 and the European Mechanism, the Ministry of Civil Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina said.
“One million and 230 doses were ordered for 20
The Federation of BiH has requested 800,000 doses of vaccines. In the first round, two doses are given, which is enough for 400,000 people, the Federal health ministry said.
“We expect 20
For the Republika Srpska, 400 thousand doses are planned for 200 thousand citizens.
The reason why our country acted differently from the countries of the region in the procurement of vaccines is that there was no initiative of the entity competent ministries towards the BiH Ministry of Civil Affairs for direct negotiations with manufacturers, the ministry told BHRT, adding that the entities can start direct negotiations.
Apparently, citizens of BiH will still wait for the only cure for coronavirus.
