A few days after the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine was approved on December 21, the European Union (EU) officially launched the Covid-19 vaccination campaign on Sunday.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Twitter on Saturday: “The vaccine has been delivered to all EU countries.”
The European Commission declared December 27th, 28th and 29th as “EU Vaccination Days.”
The first people to receive the vaccine were mainly elderly people or first-line medical personnel.
In a tweet, Aurélien Rousseau, director of the Île-de-France health bureau, said that in France, a 78-year-old woman named Mauricette was the first person to receive the vaccine. Mauricette, the former housekeeper, received the vaccine at a public hospital in the greater Paris area.
Professor Maria Rosaria Capobianchi, a virologist at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases at Lazzaro Spallanzani, was one of the first to obtain the virus. Capobianchi was a member of the team that first isolated the virus in Italy.
Among the first group of people who were stabbed were doctors and nurses.
On January 30, the first two coronavirus patients in Italy (a Chinese couple) were hospitalized in the hospital. Dr. Alexandra de Abramo works at the institute.
“This is a beautiful day, because after working in the ward for a long time, now is a day full of hope. I am very proud of that,” she told CNN shortly after receiving the injection. “The vaccine has been approved by the FDA, EMA and AIFA (Italy [regulator] -So I think it is safe and effective,” she added.
A 96-year-old nursing home resident was the first person in Spain to receive the vaccine. Araceli Rosario Hidalgo, born in 1924, received medication on Sunday in a nursing home in Guadalajara near Madrid.
The second person in the country to be vaccinated was Mónica Tapias, a nursing assistant at the same hospital.
The Czech Republic took another approach-the first dose of vaccine was injected into the country’s Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (Andrej Babiš), and the second dose was given to veteran Emilia Řepíková.
While the European Union officially launched its vaccination program on Sunday, some countries/regions began vaccinating people a day ago-Germany and Slovakia both vaccinated on Saturday.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is still continuing its rolling review of other promising vaccine candidates, including vaccine candidates from AstraZeneca and Oxford University and Johnson & Johnson.
