Speaking to ANT1 channel, Minister of Health Thanos Plevris noted that 80% of citizens over the age of 60 have been vaccinated against the coronavirus. Regarding the fines of the unvaccinated, the Minister of Health stated that the fines will be erased, while pointing out that if the unvaccinated healthcare workers are deemed unfit to return to the NHS, then this will be reassessed again in 2023.
