According to health insurance organisation official, Olga Pitsillidou, over 250 GPs are participating in the programme that only includes the AstraZeneca vaccine, which can be stored in a conventional fridge.

In the first week, doctors ordered over 10,000 doses of the vaccine while this week, an additional 9,550 doses have been requested.
