Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne has announced that Malta is now the fastest European country to inoculate its population against COVID-19.
Minister Fearne made the announcement on Wednesday evening via social media, where he shared a graph showing the “cumulative COVID-19 vaccination doses administered per 100 people,” showing Malta leading the pack in Europe, followed by Denmark, Lithuania, Spain, Slovenia and Italy.
The graph highlights that “this is counted as a single dose and may not equal the total number of people vaccinated, depending on the specific dose regime (e.g. people receive multiple doses”).
Malta’s COVID vaccination timeline:
First Group (to be vaccinated in January)
The timing of the rollout will depend on the speed of production of the vaccine.
The airline also plans to introduce daily flights between Rome Fiumicino and Malta by June
The appeal process delayed the project by 122 days
Home Affairs Minister Byron Camilleri notes that education and awareness are the best tools to combat such threats
