Mass vaccination began in Sarajevo Wednesday morning and the first residents (those over the age of 75) were thrilled to receive the vaccine.
“I'm old and I want to get vaccinated. Whatever happens, it's going to be easier,” One of the Sarajevo Canton residents who came in early in front of the Olympic Hall Zetra told N1.

The Hall will be able to receive 30 persons for vaccination at a time, which translates to 60 to 80 people in an hour.
“I'm 81, my husband is 91. We couldn't wait for the vaccine. We're overjoyed,“ a woman said.
According to the Cantonal Protocol Service, in case of bad weather, the Cantonal authorities also prepared a reception area within the Hall which is organised so that it respects all the anti-pandemic measures.
“Of course everything will be better, we’ll be able to move, socialize, go everywhere. That’s why I came here,” a man told N1.
The goal is to finish this phase of inoculation in the following three to four days and the available vaccines are those from AstraZeneca and Sinovac.
