1,335 new coronavirus cases reported in Slovenia, vaccination focusing on persons aged 60+ in next three weeks

By: P.T., STA

Health authorities recommended that Covid-19 vaccination be focused in the next three weeks on older persons so that shots are given to all Slovenian residents aged 60 or older who want to get vaccinated.

The National Institute of Public Health said the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines should be administered to persons aged 65+, and to particularly vulnerable chronic patients regardless of age and residents of care homes. The AstraZeneca vaccine is recommended for persons aged 60-64, and older persons if they express interest in getting this specific vaccine.

Some 33,000 shots of vaccine for Slovenia from 10-million EU batch

Slovenia would get an extra 32,769 shots of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine from a package of 10 million EU doses whose delivery has been pushed forward from the second to the first quarter, according to a proposal discussed Wednesday by the COREPER.

Under the proposal, seven million doses would be divided according to the pro rata principle, while the remaining three million would go to countries currently farthest behind in vaccination. This means Slovenia would not get any of the quota reserved for the vaccination laggards.

Rising trend persists, 1,335 new coronavirus cases reported

Slovenia recorded 1,335 new cases of coronavirus Wednesday as the rising trend continues. The positivity rate was 23.7%, up significantly from the day before. A total of 518 persons were in hospital this morning, up by 18 on the day before, and 108 were treated in intensive care units, down by three. Another seven Covid-19 patients died. The 7-day average of new daily cases exceeded 1,000 for the first time since mid-February.
