Prague – Modified vaccines for new variants of the coronavirus from Pfizer/BioNTech have arrived in the Czech Republic. On Thursday, for example, the Faculty Thomayer Hospital in Prague will start vaccinating with them, and it has roughly 2,800 doses available. The hospital announced this on Facebook. The spokesperson of the Ministry of Health Ondřej Jakob confirmed to ČTK that the new vaccines are already in the Czech Republic.

“Our vaccination center will vaccinate with the new vaccine starting tomorrow, September 8. The vaccine is intended for the third and fourth doses,” the hospital said. So far, she has received 480 ampoules after six doses of the medicine.

Modified vaccines were approved for use in the European Union last week, the director of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) Emer Cooke said today, when arriving at an informal meeting of EU health ministers in Prague, that the vaccines have already been distributed to some countries.

So far, according to data from the Ministry of Health, 6.97 million inhabitants, i.e. 65.1 percent of the population, have been vaccinated with at least one dose of the covid vaccine. 38.5 percent of people completed the first booster vaccination, which has been possible since last fall. Since July 18, it is possible to get vaccinated again after six months, so far more than 182,000 people have used this option, i.e. less than two percent of the population.
