ZAGREB, 5 June 2021 – Croatia’s Minister of Health, Vili Beroš, announced on Saturday at that 40% of the adult population in Croatia had now been vaccinated.
“We have made a new step forward – 40% of the adult population has been vaccinated. Thank you to the vaccinators for each dose administered and to the vaccinated citizens for their trust in science and the profession. We are on the right track to vaccinating more than half of the adult population,” Beroš said on Twitter.
Earlier this week, the minister said that the vaccine roll-out was going according to plan in Croatia.
“We are getting closer to the goal of collective immunity by the end of June, but it is important to maintain an equally high intensity of vaccination,” Beroš said at a government session on Wednesday.
Napravili smo novi iskorak – cijepljeno je 40% odraslog stanovništva. Hvala cjepiteljima na svakoj apliciranoj dozi i cijepljenim građanima na poklonjenom povjerenju znanosti i struci. Na pravom smo putu prema procijepljenosti više od polovine odraslog stanovništva🇭🇷. #CijepiSe— Vili Beroš (@ViliBeros) June 5, 2021
