Malta has one of the fastest vaccine rollouts in the European Union with over 29,000 doses administered so far. A total of 4,476 people have received both the first and second doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
The country is currently vaccinating people according to specific cohorts with eldelry people, vulnerable people and frontline workers amongst the first to receive the vaccine.
According to Fearne, Malta is expected to achieve herd immunity by summer. However, the recent delays in production at Pfizer and Modern may cause that timeline to fluctuate.
