(ANSA) - BELGRADE, 27 FEB - Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic said he was shocked at the idea of ;;European leaders establishing a 'vaccination passport' for Covid. This decision would be "shameful and anti-European," he said, against the European values of freedom of movement and choice. "I am very critical of anti-vaxxers, but who are you to restrict movement to someone who doesn't want or can't get vaccinated?", Vucic asked. In an interview today with private TV Prva, Vucic emphasized Serbia's vaccination plan's "great efficiency." The country is ranked fifth globally for vaccinations administered compared to the population, second in Europe, and first for double doses. In Serbia, he said, "Everybody will get vaccinated very quickly, which will allow citizens to travel, "we will introduce Covid passports." In the presidency's office, Vucic underlined, the president himself is the only one who has not yet got vaccinated. All the rest of the staff have already got vaccinated. He will be vaccinated, he added, when the number of those immunized with two doses exceeds 1 million. Until this morning, he specified, they were 509,000. About 1.4 m people received the first dose. Another 500,000 doses of the Chinese vaccine will arrive on March 5, in addition to the quantities of Sputnik V, Pfizer-BioNtech and AstraZeneca already available.
