The acting Minister of Health in Kosovo, Armend Zemaj has thanked the Albanian government for the opportunity it has given to their medical staff to get their vaccine in Kukes.

“In the name of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kosovo, we thank the government of the Republic of Albania and their Ministry of Health and Social Protection, especially PM Rama and Minister Manastirliu for the opportunity they have granted us and a number of health professionals from Kosovo to get their anti-COVID vaccine in Kukes,” stated Zemaj in a letter expressing his thanks.

Zemaj hasn’t spared the critiques directed at international institutions and their “nationalization” of the vaccines.

“At a time when various international institutions, which through the entire pandemic have kept many speeches regarding the countries of the Balkans, talking about the “equal approach and opportunities” and at a time, when their “solidarity” for the procurement of anti-COVID vaccines has faded because of the “nationalization” of the vaccine, the help Albania has shown Kosovo carries much more weight and shows that the “small powers” have values and can make it on their own, when they work together,” added Zemaj.

Meanwhile, the minister of health, Ogerta Manastirliu wrote on Facebook today that during the second day, the vaccination of medical staff in the front lines of Kosovo will continue, with 500 doctors and nurses being vaccinated in Kukes.
