There are no problems with the supply of flu vaccines at the national level. With a greater increase in covid cases, the state is ready to purchase additional vaccines.

The Minister also commented on the decision to stop the construction of a proton center for the treatment of cancer patients. The project was envisaged as part of the Recovery and Sustainability Plan, but earlier today Finance Minister Assen Vassilev announced that it was dropped. Hinkov accepts some of his colleague's arguments, but will insist that the center be built with funds from the state budget.

"I have very serious arguments regarding the construction of such a center, since the medical needs for children with cancer are particularly serious. I will propose to build such a center with budget funds beyond those under the HEU. I have the impression that there are reserve opportunities next year to find these funds," Hinkov said.
