The Czech Republic plans to open registration for coronavirus vaccinations to all residents 16 and older no later than June 1. Starting Wednesday, registration will be open to those aged 50 to 54, Prime Minister Andrej Babis announced yesterday.
Currently, only people over 55 and those with certain chronic diseases are vaccinated against the coronavirus in the Czech Republic. There are about 690,000 people in the 50-54 age group in the Czech Republic.
The country of 10.7 million people recently surpassed the one million fully vaccinated mark. Another 2.17 million people have already received their first vaccination. If vaccine deliveries arrive as planned, the age limit for vaccination registration will initially drop by five each week in May, the CTK agency reported, citing Babis.
The number of new coronavirus infections continues to decline in the Czech Republic. On Saturday, the number of new daily infections per 100,000 inhabitants dropped to 137 in the past seven days, while the number of deaths stands at 29,343.
