People stand patiently in line while observing physical distancing as much as possible as large queues formed outside a vaccination mega-center in Peristeri, western Athens. The queues were the result of a delay in the vaccination process due to internet problems. People said appointments had been delayed by more than an hour. Greece on Wednesday started the rollout of Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine. The country has already received 33,600 doses of the single-dose vaccine. J&J is expected to ship a total of 300,000 doses in May and a further 960,000 in June. According to health officials, the country will have vaccinated 2.5 million people in May and 4 million by June.
