EU announces date of COVID-19 vaccination start


Head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has announced a date for the start of vaccination against the coronavirus in the European Union: 27, 28 and 29 December. A statement was posted on her official Twitter account.

By now there are several vaccines against COVID-19 in the world. Two vaccines have been registered in Russia: Sputnik V and EpiVacCorona. On 5 December, vaccination against coronavirus with Sputnik V started in Moscow. The US and the UK have also started vaccinating their populations with a Pfizer/BioNTech product.

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.
