Coronavirus: French government vows to speed up vaccinations

The French government has defended its coronavirus vaccination policy against criticism that it is going far too slowly, with 516 vaccinations reported in the first week.

Government spokesman Gabriel Attal said the delay was down to logistics: teams had to visit elderly people in care homes and get each person’s consent.

The EU began vaccinating with Pfizer/BioNTech doses on 27 December.

By Sunday morning about 240,000 had been vaccinated in Germany.
