Finally some good vaccine news! Over half of adults in the EU are fully vaccinated against coronavirus. This figure extends to adults in the Netherlands.
We’re (hopefully) heading towards that herd immunity, with 53% of adults in EU member states being fully vaccinated, according to figures from the European Commission. The Dutch are steaming ahead with their vaccination strategy despite the hiccups, with 56.3% of adults being fully protected and 83% having had at least one shot.
That brings the total number of people fully protected in the EU up to 180 million. More than 67% of adults have had at least one shot.
The stats do vary between different EU member states. Malta has a stonkingly high rate of vaccination, nearly 83% of adults being fully protected. However, other states like Bulgaria are lagging behind with just 16.5% of those over 18 being fully vaxxed, reports RTL Nieuws.
More than 200 million adults in the EU are now fully vaccinated! That’s almost 55% of adults in the EU.
Full vaccination protects us from variants and will helps us avoid a new wave of infections.
