German “hymns” for vaccinations in Greece: Model country, everything works “clock”


“Chaos prevails in Germany at the appointment for vaccination. Servers are crashed, telephone lines are overloaded. In some other countries the vaccination process has long worked better and more organized. Anyone looking for model countries can find them at Greece, France, Denmark and Israel“, Writes the Handelsblatt entitled “Where do vaccinations work best”.

The German newspaper notes in response from Athens: “By the weekend, a total of 700,000 people were vaccinated in Greece, which corresponds to a percentage of 6.5% of first vaccinated. 230,000 people have already received the second dose. The goal is to have 80% of those over 18 vaccinated by the summer. In contrast, in Germany 3.3 million people have received the first dose and about 1.7 million in the second. The vaccination rate is at 4% “.

The National Vaccination Business Plan “Eleftheria” works around the clock, the financial newspaper continues and observes: “Most citizens do not need to do anything, as they are notified by SMS or mail. The contact details come from the intangible prescribing system. At the same time, citizens are given the opportunity to make appointments online. “A telephone line of communication, like the one in Germany that leads to the despair of many citizens, does not exist in Greece, because, as government circles say, it is not in line with the digitized process.”

“Greece bets on vaccinated tourists”

“Greece and Cyprus seek to restart their tourism as soon as possible, allowing mainly vaccinated tourists to enter the country. “Bilateral agreements have already been launched with Israel and other countries.”, the website writes in response from Athens tagesschau.de.

The ARD news website notes: “For a country that lives from tourism, the transmission of the virus or a mutated strain from tourists is a matter of great concern. The solution could be a vaccination certificate. Earlier this month, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis agreed with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu the creation of a two-way “travel corridor” Greece-Israel. But this is where the difficulty lies. At a time when more than 3 million people have been vaccinated in Israel, ie ⅓ of the population, in Greece the first dose of the vaccine has been given by 7% and the second by 3% of the population.

However, Nicosia, which has similar vaccination rates to Greece, also came to an agreement with Israel. Cyprus and Greece therefore belong to the countries that created them, while the EU is still discussing a vaccination certificate. In the meantime, Greece plans agreements with other third countries. According to the Ministry of Tourism, the target is an agreement with Britain or even the USA “.
