The World Health Organization (WHO) believes that vaccine deployment in Europe is unacceptably slow. 

“The vaccines provide the best way out of this pandemic. But the rollout of these vaccines is unacceptably slow and is leading to a prolongation of the pandemic,” WHO’s Europe Director Hans Kluge said in a statement on Thursday.

“We must speed up the process by stepping up production, reduce obstacles to the administration of the vaccines, and use every single vaccine vial that we have in stock now,” he added.

The WHO believes that the coronavirus infection situation in Europe is currently very serious.
