The European Union has failed, removed mistakes under the rug, and perhaps preferred to place the blame on others. The criticism comes from former Nordia CEO Casper von Coskoll, who has already been vaccinated thanks to his second home in London.
After four turbulent years as chief executive of major Nordia bank, Kasper von Coskol retired last year. Today he divides his time between homes in Finland and England.
Having a title in London also proved successful for the 60-year-old Von Coscall.
I had my first dose of the vaccine three weeks ago.
The fact that von Coskoll was able to get the vaccine is due to the fact that the vaccination waiting list in the UK is based on age and that people over the age of 55 are the best to get vaccinated. in the UK Approximately 26 million Britons out of the country’s 67 million inhabitants I have already received a first dose of the vaccine.
Many have asked me about the vaccine I received, but I usually say that this is not the goal. Without the point, you’ve got protection.
Significant differences in the rate of vaccination
Von Coskoll praises how the British coordinated the vaccination campaign.
He believes that one of the reasons the UK performs better than many other countries is that the country no longer belongs to the European Union.
The European Union has handled the vaccine issue very badly. One has failed, broke mistakes under the rug, and may have preferred to place the blame on others.

Von Coskoll stresses that he does not support Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union. He is a great friend of Europe and European cooperation, but he believes the vaccination rate indicates that the European Union and Brussels are bureaucratic and slow.
Brussels is a slow and somewhat arrogant bureaucratic organization that has never run such big projects.
I think Finland would have done better.
A claim that has been repeatedly overruled by the European Commission.
In an interview with Sweden’s Yale University, European Union Commission President Ursula von der Leyen defends the purchase of the European Union’s joint vaccine. According to her, coordination was crucial to avoiding a scenario in which the four or five largest member states could receive vaccines while many of the smaller EU countries would be left without.
