"The European Commission has announced that the European Union will accept the vaccination certificates against the new coronavirus (COVID-19) of North Macedonia from August 20. While Albania is out of attention due to the process of unserious vaccination and widespread corruption in the health system, as well as the entry of the bribery virus to make the safe" Pfizer "vaccine."
This statement was made by the elected MP of the opposition Democratic Party (DP) Zheni Gjergji who reacted to the use by Albania of vaccines not certified by EMA on Monday. According to the deputy, the use of uncertified vaccines by the European health authority is penalizing the free movement of Albanians.
"The use of EMA’s certified vaccines in the population going beyond EU rules is penalizing the acceptance of the green pass, which allows free movement of Albanians in the Schengen area,”said Gjergji.
"She stressed that Albanians deserve more than a corrupt approach to the health care and vaccination system. Albanians deserve dignity and freedom of travel," the newly elected DP deputy said.
