The main issue is the lack on vaccines. The citizens are being requested to register for the vaccination on-line. However, the number of available vaccines is currently zero . The government promised to launch new dates depending on availability of vaccines. The new dates are normally being occupied within several minutes from making them available. The number of Slovak citizens aged over 60 is 1.200.000. The goverment declared, that as per today, 345.546 Slovak citizens in total received the 1st dose and 179.444 received 2 doses of the vaccine.
