EU reaches a new milestone in its vaccines strategy

70% of adults are with at least one vaccination, 57% already have the full protection

EU is among the world leaders in vaccination process, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Tuesday. „Our target was to protect 70% of adults in the European Union with at least one vaccination in July. Today we have achieved this target. And 57% of adults already have the full protection of double vaccination“, she said in a statement, pointing out that these figures put Europe among the world leaders.

At the same time EC chief warns that the delta variant is very dangerous. She calls on everyone - who has the opportunity - to be vaccinated, for own health and to protect others.

Von der Leyen confirmed that the EU will continue to provide sufficient volumes of vaccine.
