Long lines as Serbia allows Covid jabs without appointment amid all-out drive

Long queues are seen outside vaccination centres in Serbia on Sunday 11 April, as the country allows jabs without appointment amid an all-out immunisation drive. Serbia has one of Europe’s highest rates of vaccination, having approved a wide-range of jabs, including the US-German Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, Russia’s Sputnik V and Sinopharm's Chinese vaccine. According to the latest data, a total of about 2.65 million doses of coronavirus vaccines were given in Serbia, of which about 1.2 million people received both doses. During periods of over-supply, the country has even allowed residents of neighbouring countries to come to Serbia to be vaccinated for free.
