Clinics are using Pfizer and AstraZeneca to vaccinate the population, with Sinovac also available.
Albania is one of the countries with the lowest vaccination rates in Europe with just 33% of the population fully vaccinated and 37% with one dose, according to Our World in Data.
Furthermore, reports by Voice of America for Albania show that Albania’s vaccination rate has declined for the second month in a row.
