BELGRADE – Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Tuesday received an injection of China’s Sinopharm vaccine against COVID-19 in the country’s eastern municipality of Majdanpek.

“I feel great, like nothing happened,” he said after the inoculation.

China has provided vaccines to Serbia to help the Balkan country fight the COVID-19 epidemic, with the latest shipment arriving in Belgrade on Monday.

Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabic, who received the Sinopharm vaccines at an airport, said the country aims to vaccinate roughly 40 percent of adults with the first dose done by the end of April.

Serbia has confirmed a total of 617,669 COVID-19 cases and 5,458 deaths as of Monday.
