Low percentage of young people vaccinated in Serbia a cause for concern

The highest percentage of those vaccinated, with at least one dose of vaccine against the coronavirus in Serbia, is among citizens aged between 70 and 79, that is 78.6%.

The least protected is the youngest population segment as only 15% of people between 18 and 24 years of age and 33.6% of people between 25 and 49 years of age are vaccinated against the coronavirus. These are the results of an analysis made by the Dr Milan Jovanović Batut Public Health Institute.

When it comes to children under the age of 17, only 0.3% has been vaccinated against the coronavirus. Virologist Ana Banko says that the low percentage of vaccinated people in the 25-49 age group is particularly worrying, mainly due to work commitments, their social life, the fact that they are already parents or want to become parents, and finally, because they are socially irresponsible.
