Mitsotakis: Great day for science and the European Union
“Today is a great day for science, a great day for the European Union, which managed to deliver the vaccine on the same day to all European countries, putting the message of European solidarity into practice. I believe that today all Greek men and women are smiling under our masks, as the difficult task of mass vaccination of the Greek population begins with the vaccine against Covid 19 in our homeland.
The state and political leadership are the first to be vaccinated to send the example that the vaccine is safe and effective. The first health workers will be vaccinated with us today. The people who were at the forefront of the fight against COVID, we owe them so much and above all they must be the first to be vaccinated, not only to set the example, but to be safe themselves to be able to to perform their great task.
Kyriakos Mitsotakis described the day as historic
In the coming months, our goal is to vaccinate the vast majority of Greeks. And I believe that as the vaccination progresses and as we find that the vaccine is completely safe but also effective, those of our fellow citizens who today, with suspicion, may face the prospect of vaccination will be convinced that this is the right thing to do.
The vaccine is the only way we can finally end the COVID adventure. It’s the only way to regain control of our lives. To hug and hug with the people we love. Let economic activity resume.
I believe that all this will be put into practice in the first six months of 2021, so that this emblematic year that begins in a few days for our country -200 years since the beginning of the Greek revolution- can write new pages of optimism in its history. of our place. Happy holidays, happy birthday, happy new year to all and to all “.
