The vaccines are free and are given only at the request of citizens,” Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said and recalled that the vaccines have been approved by the European Medicines Agency and the European Commission.

For the purpose, teachers are to undergo mass testing from January 25, when the second vaccination phase covering nursing homes and teachers begins”, Angelov explained.
