The government of Cyprus said on Thursday that it would unveil a Covid-19 vaccination plan for vessels linked to the country.

Details of the initiative will be announced in a circular next week and will apply to crews of vessels flying the Cypriot flag and those managed out of the nation or otherwise linked to the country.

“We feel responsible to do something at the national level,” the country’s deputy minister in charge of shipping, Vassilios Demetriades, told a Capital Link conference.
