Third vaccine dose is voluntary, Health Minister says

Cyprus’ Minister of Health Michalis Hadjipantelas said on Friday that the third vaccine dose against COVID-19 is voluntary and will not affect the safepass or the greenpass of people who do not receive it.

Speaking at a press conference, during which the results of a survey about society`s stance on vaccinations were presented, Hadjipantelas said that in the morning he visited care homes, where elderly people received their third dose against COVID-19, adding that this was their own choice.

Meanwhile, replying to questions, head of the Scientific Advisory Committee Constantinos Tsioutis, said that 20 – 30% of people who presented with symptoms due to an infection with the coronavirus will continue to have symptoms for a long period of time.

Speaking on the same subject, the Minister said that on the basis of the survey that was presented today, the Ministry will examine ways to offer more treatment to post-COVID patients.
