More than every second adult EU citizen has already received a booster vaccination against the corona virus.

Brussels – More than every second adult EU citizen has already received a booster vaccination against the corona virus. 82 percent of adults are generally immunized with mostly two doses, said EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen on Friday in Brussels. She asked everyone to vaccinate if it was possible.

Vaccination and boosters offer the best protection against the coronavirus, including the omicron variant. Von der Leyen referred to data from the EU health authority ECDC, according to which the so-called booster vaccination of all those who have already been vaccinated could prevent around one million hospital admissions in the EU. “The pandemic is not over.” (dpa)
