According to Balkan Insight, “After receiving the first batches of the vaccine acquired by Brussels, EU member states in Central and Eastern Europe on Sunday started COVID-19 vaccination campaigns with symbolic ceremonies that left images of hope following months of fear. As in the rest of the EU, health workers, politicians and civil society leaders trying to dispel popular distrust of vaccines were chosen to take the first jabs in symbolic ceremonies designed to kickstart national vaccination campaigns across the region.

A little, because the COVID-19 vaccine is so new
The vaccine is not mandatory, it is up to each individual to choose.
The vaccination campaign is organized by the National Committee for the Coordination of Activities regarding Vaccination Against COVID-19, established by the PM’s Decision no. 385 from 20.11.2020.
The vaccination campaign is going to be done in 3 stages:
Stage 1: Medical and social workers (public and private)
Stage 2: High risk population (above 65yo, chronic illness) and essential workers
Stage 3: General population
An online platform has been created for vaccination appointments to be done by individuals or employers, currently available for all populations groups: https://vaccinare-covid.gov.ro/platforma-programare/.
The vaccine will be delivered in: health care facilities (clinics, hospitals etc), vaccination centers, drive-through centers and mobile vaccination units or mobile teams.
