Republic of Srpska President Visits Vaccination Site at Banja Luka Fair


The President of the Republic of Srpska, Željka Cvijanović, together with the Director of the Health Centre of Banja Luka, Nevena Todorović, today visited the vaccination site at the grounds of the Banja Luka Fair, where more than 15,700 people have registered for vaccination.

The President of the Republic of Srpska pointed out that it is of extreme importance that the immunisation process in the Republic of Srpska is being implemented successfully.

“The organisation of the process at the vaccination point at the Banja Luka Fair is excellent. We were able to provide several types of vaccines. About 69,000 vaccines were delivered to the Republic of Srpska, and citizens have already received some of them, and soon we will have more,” stated President Cvijanović.

The President of the Republic recalled that healthcare workers are bearing the greatest burden of the coronavirus pandemic and reiterated that epidemiological measures must be respected.

“We do not want to get into a situation where we do not have enough free beds in hospitals, respirators and other equipment due to non-compliance with the adopted measures. We need to persevere, and it is very important that a great number of our citizens were already vaccinated in Serbia. The immunisation process is ongoing, and for our part, we need to strictly adhere to the adopted measures,” added President Cvijanović.

The President of Srpska recalled that the Government of the Republic of Srpska provided between 280 and 300 million KM for the healthcare sector in the course of the pandemic, as well as funds for the economy so that workers would be protected.
