Ahead of the visit, Commissioner Kyriakides said: “The EU Vaccines Strategy is a great example of the power and efficacy of European collaboration and solidarity in action. In Portugal, over 90% of the adult population is now fully vaccinated, which is truly impressive and a great achievement. Portugal’s vaccination campaign has demonstrated the effect of vaccines, with the rate of COVID-19 infections and hospitalisations having gone down – it is an example to follow. However, winter is around the corner, other respiratory viruses are re-appearing, and the pandemic is far from over. It is also more crucial that we continue addressing the impact of COVID-19 on other major health challenges, including cancer where decisive and ambitious action will be taken through Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.”

The visit is part of the Commission’s ongoing efforts and Commissioner Kyriakides’s commitment to support the roll-out of Member States’ national COVID-19 vaccination campaigns and address the impact of COVID-19 on other diseases.
