PM Babiš: Covid vaccination interval reduced as of July

The time between the first and second coronavirus vaccination doses can be shortened in the Czech Republic as of Thursday, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš announced on Sunday via his video blog.

The interval should drop to 34 days from the current 42, and in future to 21 days. As of July, there is likely to be an oversupply of vaccine doses, Babiš said, noting earlier second jabs can be scheduled via the nationwide hotline (1221).

The government will boost the vaccination campaign due to appearance of the Delta variant and is allocating another 50 million crowns to the campaign, Babiš said. Thus far, about 28 percent of the population is fully vaccinated.
