Why they are so proud with these numbers? My country is considered one of the worse in Europe in general but one thing they did right: the vaccination program. They started the vaccination after Portugal, with a double population and now I can just go at any center and have a Pfizer without any appointment. In the same time in Portugal I don't even know when an appointment will be possible. Do they really care or they just think everyone got covid on the Christmas wave and now they have immunity? ????
