    “Serbia can get the vaccine in the fourth quarter of 2021, everything is sold out until then”

    Prime Minister of Serbia, Ana Brnabic, stated today that on the day before she had talked with the manufacturer of the vaccine which would soon be registered in the European Union, and that the manufacturer of that vaccine said that Serbia could get it in the fourth quarter of 2021 and that all the quantities until then had been sold out.

    According to her, almost all the stocks of the Pfizer vaccine, which will be produced in 2021, will go to richer countries, which have already bought 96% of that vaccine.

    At the gathering marking the International Human Rights Day, the Prime Minister pointed out that Serbia would probably have to set aside between 50 and 60 million dollars for the purchase of vaccines, but it had already had to set aside between seven and eight million for advance payment for some of them, reports the Government of Serbia.

    “The procurement of vaccines is an expensive process. For all vaccines, bilaterally or through international mechanisms, such as CoVaCS, you have to pay in advance to stand in line. To pay from the budget that has already been exhausted. “If you cannot, you do not stand in line, which means that you do not have a vaccine during 2021,” said the Prime Minister.

    Nine out of ten poor countries will probably not be able to get the vaccine in 2021, because Western countries have already bought more than half of the stocks of all the vaccines in advance, 53 percent of the leading vaccines planned for production next year through advance orders, Brnabic specified, adding that those quantities would cover 14 percent of the world’s population.

    The Prime Minister stated that, for example, Canada had bought so many vaccines in advance that it could vaccinate every Canadian five times.

    “I believe that these countries will show solidarity by giving or selling vaccines to other countries, but that will not happen until richer countries are vaccinated first and they gain an additional advantage over the rest of the world,” Brnabic pointed out.

    Minister of Health, Zlatibor Loncar, said earlier that the real vaccination in Serbia could be expected in April next year.
