“Persons employed in the tourism and hospitality sector and public transport drivers and controllers will be involved in the vaccination process this week,” said Giorgi Gibradze, Chief of Operations at the Interagency Coordination Council, at a briefing in the government administration after the meeting of the Interagency Coordination Council.
“Based on the decision of the council, in the process of vaccination, persons employed in the tourism and hospitality sector, along with drivers and controllers of public transport, will be added to existing priority groups,” he said.
He also pointed out that the movement of municipal transport is restricted throughout Georgia during the holidays, until May 13, and this restriction does not apply to intercity transport, adding that the mentioned restriction and the announcement of holidays were aimed at minimizing public mobility.
Presently, all three vaccines (AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Sinopharm) are being administered nationwide in 91 facilities with 137 brigades.
Vaccination with the Chinese vaccine Sinopharm started in Georgia from today, May 4.
