PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis said the state would provide the Covid-19 vaccine for free to all Greek citizens when it becomes available, during Friday’s scheduled Covid-19 teleconference meeting.
The PM also announced that the state would also ensure the free provision of masks to all students and teachers.
“I want to be absolutely clear, the vaccine will be available free of charge to all Greek citizens. We do not yet know if it will be one vaccine or more. We do not know when we will have it at our disposal. We hope sooner rather than later. But whenever we have the vaccine at our disposal, it will be available free of charge, for all Greek citizens “, stressed Kyriakos Mitsotakis in his introductory remark.
Commenting on the opening of schools on September 7, the PM said one of the provisions was the mandatory use of a mask in the classrooms for all children, from kindergarten till the last year of high school. “The Greek government will undertake to provide free masks to all children and all teachers, so that in this way it can meet its minimum obligation to be able to provide children with the mask it requires for compulsory use in schools.”
