A new batch of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine consisting of 511,290 doses will arrive in Romania on Monday by air at the airports in Otopeni, Cluj-Napoca and Timisoara, according to the National COVID-19 Vaccination Coordination Committee (CNCAV).
Pfizer-BioNTech asked for authorization on April 9 to use their Covid-19 vaccine on 12 to 15-year-olds in the United States, which could mark a crucial next step toward achieving herd immunity.
The mass vaccination of teenagers would also relieve an enormous strain on parents who are juggling the demands of homeschooling their children while keeping up with jobs.
Senior official with the Health Ministry Andrei Baciu said on Tuesday that this April and May over 8.3 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine will enter Romania. "We received a total of 2,212,734 doses in March. This week, we will receive another 134,400 doses from Moderna and 110,564 doses from AstraZeneca.

The story of our colleague journalist Stefan Markov (36) has become one of the most widely read posts for February on the online sites across Bulgaria. It was quoted by a number of our colleagues and proved helpful to many people.
