COVID-19 Eastern Europe webinar: "Vaccination emergency in Eastern Europe"

While vaccination has surged ahead in the EU in the last two months and is on track to reach the 70% target around the end of July, Eastern Europe lags way behind. The EU will also have large excess supplies coming on stream. The urgent question becomes how to match supply and demand.


Thus, on June 9, within the framework of the “3 DCFTAs” Project, CEPS in cooperation with the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum is organizing an online COVID-19 Eastern Europe webinar: "Vaccination emergency in Eastern Europe".


The webinar will debate vaccination strategies and latest vaccination data in Eastern Partnership states and Russia, as well as in the EU. The adequacy of organisation of vaccination and availability of international travels will also be discussed. The event will be open for audience participation in Q & A session.
