“I think we know this isn’t going to be perfect. We don’t have a vaccine for everyone right away, so we’re going to have to make difficult decisions,” said Claire Hannan, executive director of an organisation that represents the managers of state vaccination programs.
The European Union will start vaccination for Covid-19 after Christmas, the bloc’s chief executive Ursula von der Leyen said on Thursday. “It’s Europe’s moment. On December 27, 28 and 29 vaccinations will start across the EU.”
Until Wednesday, there were 222 Covid-19 vaccine candidates worldwide, and 56 of them were in clinical trials, according to the World Health Organization.
