Four EU-certified vaccines against Covid-19, are now being used in the Czech Republic, from from Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson. More than 77 percent of all doses have been from Pfizer, while over 4,600 people have received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine during the first week of its use.

In May, the Czech Republic expects to receive 2.85 million doses of vaccines.

Vaccination against COVID-19 was launched in the country at the end of December. Clients of senior homes and healthcare personnel were inoculated first, and other groups of seniors and teachers gradually followed.

Currently, the vaccination registration system is open to all people over the age of 55. Younger people with selected chronic diseases are also prioritized. However, some seniors registered for vaccination with their GPs are still waiting for vaccines.

As of July, all inhabitants over the age of 16 may be able to register for vaccination, Arenberger stated yesterday. He added that he expects clinical trials enabling the vaccination of children to be completed by the autumn.
