Largely unnoticed by the public, the EU has changed its vaccination strategy. Previously, the aim was to vaccinate 70 percent of adults twice – with a broad and differentiated portfolio.
Now Brussels is saying that children and adolescents should also be vaccinated. And for adults, booster vaccinations could become necessary; in Belgium, there is already talk of a third vaccination date in December.
In addition, the EU Commission is relying almost exclusively on mRNA preparations – classic vaccines such as AstraZeneca or Sputnik V are being pushed out of the market.
As a result, we will probably have to prepare for a continuation of the vaccination campaign in autumn. But this also increases the danger that the new vaccination certificate will become a kind of ticket to a (somewhat) normal life.
Basic rights are being pushed more and more into the background…
P.S. The fact that Europe and the USA now even want to vaccinate children, while medical personnel in most countries of the world are still completely without protection, is a “moral catastrophe”, says WHO chief Ghebreyesus. Will he be heard in Brussels?
