EU warns not enough COVID vaccines for all in Europe until 2022

European Union (EU) officials warned during an internal meeting there won’t be enough COVID-19 vaccines for everyone in Europe until 2022, Reuters reported.

The 27-nation bloc has booked more than 1 billion doses of potential COVID-19 vaccines from three drugmakers. It is negotiating the advance purchase of another billion vials with other companies.

“There will not be sufficient doses of COVID-19 vaccines for the entire population before the end of 2021,” a European Commission official told diplomats from EU states in a closed-door meeting on Monday, a person who attended it told Reuters.
