The third dose will also be given to vulnerable groups and people facing serious health problems, while health authorities are considering expanding the plan to the wider public.

According to Katimerini, revaccinations will begin in early September.

Some media reported that the Vaccination Committee is also considering re-vaccination of the elderly in nursing homes, as well as health workers who were first vaccinated in January last year.
