The Graphic Truth: Doesn't the EU need these jabs for itself?
As the EU grapples with a sluggish COVID vaccine rollout — a result of both bureaucratic missteps as well as supply issues — European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen has called for tougher export controls on vaccines being produced within the bloc, especially those going to nations with "higher vaccination rates than us."

We take a look at who has received doses from the EU, and how their respective vaccine drives are going.
