Belgium pledges to provide Corona vaccine for free to its citizens
Last Monday, the Belgian government announced that it will provide the Corona vaccine for free to citizens who want to obtain it, and that it intends to vaccinate at least 70% of its population, . 8 million people.
At the Ministerial Conference on Public Health, it was said that the vaccine will not be mandatory, and it will be available free of charge to those who wish to obtain it, and the groups that have priority to obtain it will be determined by scientists and experts.
The European Commission announced its approval to conclude a new contract to obtain Covid-19 vaccines, which is the fifth contract with the German Curvac Group, and it aspires to sign a sixth contract with American Moderna soon.
The vaccines will not be delivered until after ensuring their safety and effectiveness against the disease, and the distribution process will only take place with the approval of the European Medicines Agency. The European Union also announced that the first vaccines will be distributed in early 2021.
