Vaccination against COVID-19 started on 27 December 2020 across the European Union, in a moment of unity.
A safe and effective vaccine is our lasting way out of the pandemic. The European Commission has been working tirelessly to secure doses of vaccines, and approved three COVID-19 vaccines, which were assessed as being safe and effective. Vaccines are being sent at the same time to all EU countries, under the same conditions.
For now, people in priority groups are vaccinated – elderly people or healthcare professionals. But soon there will be enough vaccines for the entire EU population.
Once enough people are vaccinated, we will be able to get our normal lives back, gradually.
