The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has called the date of the start of vaccination against coronavirus in the European Union. A statement to this effect was posted on her official Twitter account.
“Europe’s time has come. On December 27, 28 and 29, vaccinations will begin across the EU. Together we will protect our citizens. Together we are stronger,” von der Leyen wrote.
By now there are several vaccines against COVID-19 in the world. For example, two vaccines have been registered in Russia: Sputnik V and EpiVacCorona. On December 5, vaccination against coronavirus with Sputnik V started in Moscow. In the U.S. and Great Britain also began vaccinating the population with a drug from Pfizer/BioNTech.
Earlier it was reported that EU leaders agreed to create a unified community strategy for testing, contact tracing, and vaccination against COVID-19. The European Medicines Agency, which issues approvals for vaccines, is studying BioNTech and Pfizer’s product, but a final decision on its use has not yet been made.
