Mizotakis expressed support for the proposal that the EU is promoting the establishment of a vaccine certificate.
He said that under the background that the epidemic is still prevalent, this move can restore the travel of vaccinated persons among member states to the greatest extent.
On the 17th, the European Union launched a "digital green certificate" containing the new crown vaccination status for the reference and implementation of member states.
In addition, regarding the safety of the AstraZeneca vaccine, Theodoridou, chairman of the Greek National Vaccination Committee, said that Greece will continue to use this vaccine to provide vaccination services to the public.
