Why is Bulgaria destroying COVID vaccines for millions of levs

Bulgaria is destroying COVID vaccines for millions of levs, and at the moment about 5 million doses of the drugs are stagnant, waiting for their expiration date. This is what the journalist Poli Panteva warned about on the air of Nova TV.

“Our country has agreed in advance and announced more quantities of vaccines. We are talking about 10 thousand of the two vaccines, we expect more than 1 million vaccines from Pfizer. In Bulgaria, however, only about 30 percent of people are still vaccinated. While this is going on, we have to throw out more vaccines. We have about 3 million donated preparations, about 4 million administered, and about 100 thousand resold. So far, our country has received over 13 million doses of vaccines,” she explained.

The data on vaccinated children in less than 1,900 immunized are also worrying.

"We have the opportunity to build a lot in this regard, but we are unlikely to break away from the bottom of European statistics," Panteva added.

According to her, against the background of the destruction of drugs in our country, Bulgaria has agreed on deliveries of vaccines for next year.

"What we can do from now on is try to make donations to third parties because resale is unlikely," he said.

She clarified that vaccines are being destroyed throughout Europe and the United States, but with a much higher percentage of those immunized against the coronavirus.

Yesterday, the Bulgarian Health Minister warned that a new covid wave might occur this fall.
