Vaccinations against COVID-19 have been delivered to all European Union member states a day before the first doses are scheduled to be administered, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Saturday, APA reports citing Sputnik.

“We are starting to turn the page on a difficult year. Today is delivery day and tomorrow, vaccination against COVID-19 is beginning across the European Union,” von der Leyen said in a video statement.

The president stressed that the rollout will take place simultaneously across the entirety of the bloc in what she deemed “a touching moment of unity and a European success story.”
