"Statement by Commissioner Kyriakides to the Plenary of the European Parliament on the Transparency of the Purchase as well as the Access to COVID-19 vaccinations"


We are witnessing with great concern an increasingly rapid rise of infection rates and deaths all across the EU.
Vaccination is not a magic solution that will allow us to go back to our lives overnight. For COVID-19, there is no silver bullet, it is important that we are frank about this.
But vaccinations, once we have a vaccine which is proven safe and effective, will play a crucial role: in saving lives, in containing the pandemic, in protecting health care systems, in helping to restore our economy.
