EU plans to vaccinate 70% of adult population by summer

The European Commission stated on Tuesday that each member state of the European Union should vaccinate at least 70% of the adult population in their countries against the coronavirus by summer 2021.

A minimum of 80% of people older than 80, and 80% of health and social care professionals should be vaccinated by March 2021, the commission added.

"The Commission, Member States and the EMA [European Medicines Agency] will work with companies to use the EU's potential for increased vaccine manufacturing capacity to the fullest. The Commission is working with Member States on vaccination certificates, in full compliance with EU data protection law, which can support the continuity of care," Brussels also noted.
