As per the plan announced earlier in the week by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and by Malta’s Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne, the COVID-19 vaccine produced by BioNTech and Moderna, is on its way to Malta and to all the other EU member states ahead of the EU Vaccination Days which start tomorrow.
One consignment of 10,000 doses will be arriving today, with more doses arriving next Monday, and every Monday after that, until all 500,000 doses would have made it to Malta.
