EU crisis: Vaccine centres shut as bloc’s supplies dwindle – as others take HOLIDAY
The European Union’s abysmal vaccination rollout has been further ridiculed after vaccination centres across the bloc took the Easter weekend off. Vaccination centres in Madrid, Spain, where only five percent of the population have been vaccinated, halted vaccinations for four days so medical staff could rest over Easter. In Germany, multiple vaccination sites shut down across the states of Thuringia and Brandenburg in a move that stunned locals.
In other German federal states, such as Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate, vaccination centre closures are possible given the low number of vaccines on site.
One Deutsche Welle reporter, Janelle Dumalaon, tweeted: “Some vaccination centres are going to be shut over the Easter weekend.
“But that’s okay because it’s not like this is an emergency or anything.”
Leave.EU also took to Twitter to mock the German leaders and said: “German leaders pummelled by the press for this… Because everyone knows COVID-19 takes the holidays off!”
