Germany hopes to start COVID-19 vaccination before year-end -health minister

News conference on COVID-19 pandemic, in Berlin

BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s health minister said on Tuesday he hopes that a COVID-19 vaccine will get European Union approval before Christmas and that first inoculations can start before the end of the year.

Jens Spahn also confirmed the goal of a joint European Union approval. “We want a regular approval, not an emergency approval,” he said at a press conference.
