This was announced by the official representative of the German government Steffen Seibert.
He published a photo of the vaccination certificate, which says that 66-year-old Angela Merkel was vaccinated on April 16. She was injected with the drug Vaxzevria вЂ” a trademark of the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca.
вЂњI am glad that today I received my first AstraZeneca vaccination. I want to thank everyone who participates in the vaccination campaign, and everyone who has been vaccinated, " the official quotes the Bundeskanzler, who called the vaccination вЂњthe key to victory over the coronavirus epidemic.вЂќ
Merkel became almost the last among the European leaders who confirmed that they were vaccinated against COVID-19. It was overtaken by the Prime Ministers of Great Britain, France, Serbia, and many other countries.
