Top officials get booster shots


Ljubljana - Slovenia's top officials have received booster shots of coronavirus vaccines nearly nine months after they received their first shots in the early stages of the vaccination campaign.

President Borut Pahor received his booster shot on Tuesday and Prime Minister Janez Janša on Monday, according to their social media posts. Speaker Igor Zorčič was vaccinated last week.

All top government officials and parliamentarians received the AstraZeneca vaccine in March, while the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are currently used for booster shots.

A total of 176,740 people in Slovenia have so far received booster shots, just over 8% of the entire population. Among those aged 70 or more, roughly a third have received a booster shot.

While the overall vaccination rate remains low at 54%, 64% of all adults are fully vaccinated.
