Until Thursday, January 21st, 20 people in Serbia reported side effects after being vaccinated, all of which were short-time reactions and caused no concern, Pavle Zelic from the state Agency for Medicines and Medical Devices (ALIMS) said.
He told those reactions were „local and systemic”.
Zelic said that all three types of the vaccine in Serbia – US-German Pfizer-BioNTech, Russian Sputnik V, and Chinese Sinofarm – underwent all necessary controls and tests.
„They are as they should be. ALMIS stands behind its decisions”, he added.
So far, 84,075 people in Serbia received a vaccine, mostly Sputnik V, and over 400,000 have registered for the immunization. China sent a million doses of Sinofarm vaccine to Serbia and promised to distribute more in next months.
