In the European Union, 18.2 million people have already received two doses of vaccination in the 3 months since the start of coronavirus vaccination. This represents 4.1% of the total population of the 27 countries of the community. The European Union has so far received 88 million doses of the vaccine and used 62 million.
This was announced on Twitter by the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.
