Italy and other EU nations began administering vaccinations against COVID-19 on Sunday, December 27.

A tweet from the EU Commission noted that the "first vaccinations against COVID-19 are beginning across the European Union today. We have acted in unity throughout this pandemic. Today we begin to turn the page on this chapter, together.”

Italy’s Ministero della Salute said December 27 represented “a new phase” in the fight against COVID-19.
