The Bulgarian Ministry of Health has announced that due to lack of demand, stocks of Kovid-19 vaccines have increased in the country and the destruction of expired vaccines is inevitable.
Health Minister Asen Mesediev said: “There is no interest in vaccination. We are on the verge of destroying 2.8 million vaccines that are about to expire.” Megidiev reported that after the epidemic subsided, they closed the vaccination units in the country’s main hospitals, which are almost no longer visited.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Health, it was reported that Bulgaria had to import an additional 8 million vaccines until the end of this year, depending on the coordinated struggle policy of the European Union (EU) during the intense Kovid-19 period. epidemic, and part of these contracted imports were paid in advance.
Minister Mecidiev said that this import is an “unnecessary expense” and that the mandatory destruction of these ineffective vaccines against new versions of Kovid-19 would be an unavoidable additional expense.
Bulgaria is among the countries with the lowest Covid-19 vaccination rate in the European Union. About 39 thousand people died in the epidemic in the country.
