The EU has said 200 million Europeans had been fully vaccinated, more than half of the adult population but still short of a 70% target it had set for the summer.

European Commission spokeswoman Dana Spinant told reporters that based on the latest data of the European Centre for Disease Control "54.7% of the adult population is fully vaccinated with either two doses or one dose in the case of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine". "We have 68.4% of adults in the EU who have already had their first dose," she added. "We are now among the regions of the world that have vaccinated the most, but it is important that this progress is distributed in a more balanced way so that there are no pockets where the virus can spread and mutate," she added.
