EU launches vaccination tracking tool in Europe

The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) launched on Monday, February 1 a tracking tool for COVID-19 vaccinations across Europe that provides an overview of the development of the vaccination campaign in each country.

Le Figaro reports.

The ECDC, which brings together the 27 countries of the European Union, plus Liechtenstein, Norway, and Iceland, published the first data series on its website this morning but is still incomplete.

While the Member States are required to report their figures once a week, some, including France, have not yet provided national data.

According to data compiled by the agency today, 8.23 million doses of vaccines have been administered in the Member States — although there are actually many more.

“In this first step, tracking the number of doses distributed by country and the doses received by individuals provides useful information on the progress of introduction and the progress of vaccination campaigns,” the ECDC explained in a statement.
