EU largest exporter of COVID vaccines - Von der Leyen

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Monday that the European Union has reached a milestone of one billion exported COVID-19 vaccines to over 150 countries worldwide.

"Very clearly, the European Union is the largest exporter of COVID-19 vaccines," Von der Leyen noted, adding that the support to third countries has been similar to that provided to member states.

According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, nearly 80% of adult EU citizens have received at least one vaccine dose since the start of the vaccination campaign last year.
