‘We are so far behind’: France under fire for slow vaccine rollout

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “‘We are so far behind’: France under fire for slow vaccine rollout” – below is their description.

#France should receive its first deliveries of Moderna’s coronavirus #vaccine this week, the head of the medical regulator said on Monday, as the government comes under fire for being too #slow with its vaccine rollout. France, which has a strong anti-vaccination movement, started its inoculation campaign at the end of December, as did many other European countries. But it has only vaccinated hundreds since then, versus tens of thousands in Germany and more a million in Britain.
