TALLINN - Estonia's COVID-19 vaccination project leader Marek Seer said that those interested in getting vaccinated should not wait for the single-dose Jannsen vaccine.

According to Seer, Jannsen's manufacturer is experiencing supply difficulties and it is not known when they will be overcome. However, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available. Therefore, Seer advised people waiting for the single-dose Jannsen vaccine not to wait. "Go and get vaccinated with what is available," he said.

Seer added that the rate of vaccination has decreased, but at the same time vaccination opportunities have increased. He pointed out that there will be vaccination possibilities in at least one shopping center in each county on Saturday and Sunday.
