Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda addressed the country’s citizens, encouraging them to participate in vaccinations.
“We have enough vaccines today, and there will be more each week. It is very important to take advantage of this opportunity to create collective immunity as soon as possible. We are entering a phase of mass vaccination and more and more people, regardless of age, may be vaccinated against the virus. But let’s not forget for whom this disease is most dangerous: our parents and grandparents, uncles and aunts. All the elders,” said the president.
