According to data from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), which is the EU’s institution, slightly behind the European Commission, nearly 171 million doses of vaccine have been distributed in 27 countries in the ‘EU, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

Around 100 million doses of vaccine were delivered to the EU in the first quarter of the year. EU officials expect a total of 410 million doses of the vaccine, including 250 million doses of BioNTech-Pfizer, 35 million doses of Moderna, 70 million doses of AstraZeneca and 55 million doses of Johnson and Johnson in the second quarter.
