European Union - Covid vaccine - Q&A from the press briefing (Dec 16, 2020)


Q: With respect to the vaccines, is France satisfied with the process coordinated by Ursula Von Der Leyen to start the distribution of vaccines on the same day in the 27 member states?

A: From the outset, France has been calling for strong European coordination in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. The fact that a vaccine will be available at the same time in all European countries is a step in that direction. We also have common European procedures to authorize these vaccines, offering a guarantee of safety.
