Some 200 million doses of Corona vaccine will have been administered in the EU by the end of the week, according to Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. By July, an estimated 70 percent of adults could have received their first vaccination, von der Leyen said Monday, according to Deutsche presse Agentur, speaking from circles of participants at a CDU executive committee meeting she joined.

Before the end of May, von der Leyen said she expected the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to approve the Biontech/Pfizer vaccine for adolescents aged 12 and older.

Help for other countries
One must also look to other regions of the world, the EU Commission president said. So far, she said, the EU has been the only democratic region in the world to export to other countries – 240 million vaccine doses. Almost half of these, she said, had gone to Canada, Africa, the Western Balkans, Japan and the UK, for example.

Neither Great Britain nor the United States has exported doses so far, von der Leyen criticized. With German support, too, attempts are now being made to set up their own production facilities in Africa.
