ZAGREB, October 28, 2021 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said on Thursday that 56% of the adult population in Croatia received the first injection of the COVID-19 vaccine and warned that in the last week 750 of the 1,000 patients hospitalized were people who had not been vaccinated.
Today we have reached the vaccination rate of 56% of the adult population who received the first dose, or nearly 1.9 million citizens, Plenković said at a government session, again calling on citizens fully vaccinated to get vaccinated themselves with the third shot and to those who have not been vaccinated to do so.
Over the past week, out of 1,000 hospitalized patients, up to 75% have not been vaccinated, he said.
Of the 15 people aged 40 to 59 who died in the past seven days, only one had been vaccinated, he said, calling on all to protect themselves given the increase in new infections in recent days.
In the past 24 hours, Croatia has registered 4,154 new cases of coronavirus, 26 patients have died and 11,320 doses of the vaccine have been administered, it was reported earlier today on the koronavirus government website. .hr.
There are currently 22,382 active cases, including 1,231 hospitalized patients, 160 of whom are on ventilators.
