Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- Around the world, countries are trying to store enough vaccines for their citizens due to the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, while the Serbian government complains that people are not paying enough attention to over-received vaccines.
In Serbia, which has a population of about 7 million, Belgrade, which has signed a 15 million-dose vaccine deal, has been vaccinating even tourists arriving in the country since last week, and the number of holidaymakers coming to Serbia to get vaccinated has increased because it cannot find it in its own country.
Thousands of people from neighboring countries have reportedly flocked to Serbia for "vaccine tourism".
Serbian officials said they are mobilizing their citizens to be vaccinated at designated centers without an appointment.
"I beg you to get vaccinated, we have the vaccine and there will be more, for God's sake, I beg you to come and get your vaccine," President Aleksandar Vucic said in a call to citizens.
"It is clear that not enough people want to be vaccinated," said Rade Panic, president of the Serbian Medical Chamber.
Some doctors in the country have complained that the anti-vaccination campaign, which has gained strength in Serbia from the beginning to the present day, has been very effective.
