The decision by the European Medicines Agency on Monday to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine will enable the first vaccinations to be administered in Europe before the end of the year.

As reported on November 27, Monaco has ordered vaccines for residents and will make its inoculation plan known as soon as the supplies arrive in the Principality.

“With regard to vaccination operations and their organisation, all information will be communicated when the time comes. It will then be a question of determining the priority audiences, the types of vaccines available and the methods of administration of the vaccine,” the Government said.

Given the small size of Monaco and the experience gained with mass testing, it can be expected that the vaccine roll-out will be rapid.
