On Sunday, December 27, the Czech Republic started coronavirus vaccine rollout against coronavirus.
Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis became the first person in the country to be given a vaccine in Prague, just before other hospitals in the capital and Brno started to distribute the 9,750 doses the country has received so far.
During an interview with Czech Television, the 80-year-old Pavel Pafko, a professor at Charles University and a renowned surgeon made a slip of the tongue saying the word “vagina” instead of “vaccine”.
“Let me first thank everyone who was involved in the development and distribution of this vagina… oh, vaccine,” Pafko said. As expected, the video went viral on social networks…
“I don’t understand the 45 percent of the Czech population who are hesitant to get vaccinated,” Pafko added. According to him, people should trust doctors not only when they get into intensive care units, but also during prevention. “The vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech has a 93 percent effectiveness and has been tested on more than 40,000 people, there is no reason to worry.”
