The President of Georgia took the AstraZeneca vaccine on live TV. She was vaccinated at an infectious disease hospital.
“I got the vaccine out of turn today because it was not for the president to take and I do not think I belong to the group it belongs to. First there are doctors, nurses and medical staff who have passed a very difficult test these months.
The vaccination of the following groups will start, and if we want to get out of the dire economic consequences, it is necessary to use this opportunity, which has been given to us, to protect society and the country and get out of this crisis.
I wish you all good health and I am sure we will overcome this challenge and others as well”, - said Salome Zourabichvili.
