Information about Operation “Freedom” is given, in an article in the newspaper “I Kathimerini”, by the Minister of State Akis Skertsos. According to the minister, “by the time these lines are written, 6.4 million people over the age of 12 have chosen to get the vaccine and gain immunity. This means 2 out of 3 Greek men and women (66% of the 9.67 million citizens over the age of 12) “.

However, the Minister of State adds in his reasoning, “as the number of citizens who have natural immunity also affects the goal of vaccination, we must take into account one more fact. According to infectious disease specialists, the population that has acquired natural immunity is 2 to 3 times higher than the officially reported cases, because many citizens have become ill without being diagnosed by a laboratory test. “So, the total population that currently has immunity, either through the vaccine or through the natural disease, is estimated at 7.5 million citizens, that is, 3 out of 4 citizens now have immunity in one way or another.”

“If we exclude from the total population of the country children under the age of 12, who are not allowed to get the vaccine (ie 1.2 million), then the actual population that remains and can get the vaccine ranges from 1.5 to 2 million citizens over the age of 12 (the exact population per age group will emerge from the forthcoming ELSTAT census). Of that number, about 560,000 are minors who are not at risk for serious illness.

To put it bluntly, at present only 10 to 15% of the total adult population of the country that can be vaccinated do not have antibodies. “Of these, the group that should be of concern to us is the 600,000 unvaccinated citizens over the age of 60 (about 5.5% of the population), as they are up to 20 times more likely to become seriously ill, intubated and end up with covid.”

“So how exactly did the vaccination campaign fail when we achieved exactly the goal we had set at the beginning of 2021, that is, by September almost 70% of the population that can be vaccinated has been vaccinated? And this, in fact, against the systematic support of the anti-vaccinators by officials of the official opposition, who only later finally decided to be vaccinated “, stresses Mr. Skertsos, who clarifies that” the vaccination of 70 was never set by the Ministry of Health % by May, for the very simple reason that we knew there were no vaccines available under the Europe Agreement to make that happen. ”

“The national vaccination campaign has been a big step forward for the data of the Greek state and has succeeded. It must be preserved as an acquis by all sane citizens in order to be an example to be imitated in other sectors of the State as well “, concludes Mr. Skertsos.
