Vaccination of the population has started in all countries of the European Union. The first dose was taken by the elderly and hospital staff in countries such as Germany, Italy, France, etc.
Unlike other union countries, at the top of the vaccination list in Greece were President Katerina Sakellaropoulou and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitstakis. The vaccine was injected to them in the first person, not for privilege issues but to encourage that part of the population that fears the side effects of the Pfizer / BioNTech pharmaceutical group product. President Sakellaropoulou considered the vaccine to be the greatest Christmas gift science has given to humanity.
For the same reason, the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Andrey Babish was vaccinated earlier in the day. 101-year-old German Gertrude Haze is the oldest so far, she was vaccinated on the first official day, although the German authorities started the vaccination on Saturday evening in an asylum in the eastern Saxony-Anhalt region.
Vaccination has also started in other countries such as France, Spain. December 27, 28 and 29 are the days when vaccination will start in every corner of the European Union. The European Commission has signed contracts with several pharmaceutical companies with the aim of vaccinating 446 million people by the autumn of next year. Pfizer / BioNTech is the first pharmaceutical group to receive the green day for vaccination in the EU, while in the first days of 2021 it is expected that the company Moderna will be given urgent permission./KLAN
