The Greek authorities have decided to tighten anti-coronavirus measures from February 1. They will equate citizens who have not received the third, booster dose of the vaccine, to the unvaccinated and will forbid them to visit closed premises.
This was stated by the head of the Greek Ministry of Health Thanos Pleuris, noting that the ban on entering closed premises will apply to those who were vaccinated more than seven months ago and did not receive a booster injection – such citizens will be considered unvaccinated.
At the same time, their certificate will be valid, since this document is of a pan-European standard, and its validity period is nine months. But people without a booster dose will not “enjoy the benefits of indoor and outdoor use that are available to the fully vaccinated.”
Recall that in Greece, from mid-November 2021, the unvaccinated can visit restaurants, cinemas, museums, gyms only with a PCR test. In connection with the spread of the omicron strain, a number of restrictions are in force in the country until January 16.
