Maia Sandu gets booster dose: Next wave will reach Moldova too

President Maia Sandu repeatedly called on the citizens to get vaccinated for COVID-19 after being administered the booster dose. She said she was concerned also about the developments around the world. Last week alone, 1 million people got infected with the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and the new pandemic wave is expected to soon reach Moldova too, warned Maia Sandu.

“First of all, I urge those who didn’t get any vaccine dose to do this. I don’t know how many people still need to die or to become seriously ill for everyone to realize how important vaccination is and how serious this pandemic is. So, I ask once again those who didn’t get vaccinated to take care and appreciate their health and life and the health and live of those around,” Maia Sandu said after she was administered the third dose of vaccine, being quoted by IPN.

According to President Sandu, the Ministry of Health has hundreds of thousands of Pfizer vaccine doses and several hundred thousand doses of Moderna. The low vaccination rate is the responsibility of everyone, not only of the Ministry of Health.

The official assured that expired vaccines are not administered, while reports that vaccine doses with passed expiry date are being administered further discourage the people from getting a vaccine. She said the people should ask the health workers to show the use-by date of vaccines so as to avoid any suspicions.

Out of the 450 persons confirmed with COVID-19 who are now in hospitals, 60 are in a very serious state and eight of them were out on a ventilator.

Since the start of the pandemic, Moldova has got 376,000 cases of COVID-19.
