Kyriakides at Delphi Forum: Over a Third of Europeans Have Been Vaccinated at Least Once

ATHENS — A 34 pct of the adult population in Europe has received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, noted European Commissioner for Health & Food Safety Stella Kyriakides at the Delphi Economic Forum VI at Zappeion Hall in Athens on Monday.

Speaking in a panel on the opening day of the international conference, Kyriakides added that some 16 million vaccines have so far been delivered to EU countries. The bloc has also agreed to receive another 1.8 billion doses delivered by BioNtech/Pfizer in the immediate future.

Kyriakides also noted the activation of the Health Emergency Preparedness & Response Authority (HERA), a dedicated authority for the support of medical counter-measures during a health crisis.

The Delphi Economic Forum VI (May 10-15) is under the aegis of President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou. Athens-Macedonian News Agency is a communications sponsor (see www.amna.gr/delphi-VI).
