Transport workers to be included in the priority list

The Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Lithuania has applied to the Ministry of Health with the request to amend the legislation and include transport workers in the priority list for vaccination (coronavirus).

The Lithuanian Shipowners Association welcomes the United Nations Resolution MSC.473 (ES.2) dated 21st of November, 2020 where seafarers are recognized as “key-workers” and also supports the International Maritime Organization’s call for seafarers to be vaccinated as a matter of priority.
