With Estonia seeking to increase its currently slow pace of COVID-19 vaccination and reach the far-off goal of 70% vaccination coverage a plan to pay bonuses to healthcare workers doing vaccination has been introduced, reported the Baltic News Agency.

General practitioners with over 80% of their clients vaccinated will receive EUR 1,000 extra, the portal said.

With the goal of vaccinating another 185,000 Estonians, the Estonian Health Insurance Fund has announced paying EUR 50 bonuses to general practitioners, nurses and special treatment providers for each 20 conducted vaccines. Every first and second dose will be counted from July 1 to September 30.
