Co-chair of the Save Romania Union - Freedom, Unity and Solidarity Party (USR PLUS) ruling coalition Dan Barna will suggest that a weekly report be presented during the meetings of the governmental coalition on the developments in the COVID-19 vaccination campaign.

"I will propose to the coalition to have a weekly report, at the coalition meetings, on the latest developments in the vaccination campaign, because it is very clear that the support of every component of society - political parties, unions, the Church - is needed for this vaccination campaign to move forward, to achieve its goals. I will ask my coalition colleagues to have a weekly report, just to try to calibrate our efforts. USR PLUS has embarked on an additional campaign and we have called on all other parties and civic, social, religious organisations to develop their own campaigns in order to get as close as possible to the citizens and to succeed in having the results we set out to because there is no other solution: vaccination is the only solution to be able to get out of this logic of restrictions imposed by the pandemic," Barna told the media at the Parliament House at the end of the USR PLUS National Bureau meeting.

Deputy Prime Minister Barna and Health Minister Ioana Mihaila announced on Thursday the start of a USR PLUS national campaign to promote vaccination against COVID-19, encouraging other organisations to follow their suit.

"There is an official governmental campaign, but beyond that, every effort and contribution matters a lot. I am calling on other organisations with a significant impact on society - NGOs, churches, trade unions, companies - to carry out their own activities and campaigns. This initiative of USR PLUS should be seen as an add-up campaign to this national endeavour to promote vaccination activities. It is an initiative supported and funded exclusively by USR PLUS," said Barna.
