    Important EU donation: Vaccines to get quickly to every part of Serbia (PHOTO)

    Twenty-four public health institutes throughout Serbia received specialised vehicles for the transport of vaccines and medical teams, thanks to the support of the European Union.

    President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, and Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Serbia, Ambassador Emanuele Giaufret, attended the delivery of vehicles equipped with portable fridges and additional equipment that enables the distribution of vaccines, while providing a cold chain. In this way, the vaccines will be available in remote health stations and to a larger number of people.

    Also, the EU continues to support financially the employment of 200 healthcare workers, in 23 health institutions in Serbia, for anoterh three-month period, thus providing additional human resources needed in the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic.

    “At the moment when we want to send vaccines anywhere in Serbia, we will no longer rent vehicles, but we will be able to deliver vaccines to almost every place within 10 to 12 hours. The vehicles will go to 24 municipalities, from Sombor, Kikinda and Subotica, to Pirot, Vranje, Uzice or Novi Pazar. We can do all of that thanks to the assistance of the EU, which, in this project alone, amounts to more than EUR 600,000. It is very important for us to say thank you, because this money belongs to taxpayers in other countries. We have thus solved a significant problem we have been facing in the distribution of vaccines,” President Vucic said.

    This support, worth close to EUR 1.2 million, is part of a broader EU aid package totalling more than EUR 10 million in medical and non-medical equipment delivered during this and previous years in partnership with the UNOPS office in Serbia.

    Since the beginning of the pandemic, the European Union has supported Serbia in the fight against the spread of the virus with more than EUR 77 million, of which 20.7 million was spent on support and the most urgent needs to strengthen the healthcare system in Serbia, both in crisis situations and in regular operations.
