Mass COVID-19 vaccinations to start in EU in 10 days

The European union is set to start the COVID-19 vaccinations on 27 December, according to European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen.

“It’s Europe’s moment. On 27, 28 and 29 December, vaccination will start across the EU,” she tweeted.

Local health minister Chris Fearne has not yet commented but has before claimed that Malta will have access to the vaccine before the end of 2020.

First in line for inoculation will be the most vulnerable, including those aged 85+, health care workers, and people living and working in homes for the elderly. Malta is set to receive 1.6 million doses of the vaccine, including Pfizer and BioNTech and five other vaccinations, which have been secured by the EU.
