On the next period, we plan to mobilize an as large number as possible of mobile teams, especially in rural zones. All this in order to prevent another wave of infections. It is quite important for us to speed up the vaccination campaign, enhance the degree of acceptiing of the anti-COVIDE-19 vaccines, accomplish the full scheme of immunization, especially as presently we can take advantage of a good period from the epidemiological viewpoint as compared with other countries,’’ the state secretary at MSMPS, Denis Cernelea said.
