How Malta Became a COVID-19 Overachiever

The island of Malta fully vaccinated 90% of the population over the age of 12 against COVID-19 relatively quickly. They quickly vaccinated the most vulnerable in the population, including the elderly and healthcare workers and sent mobile clinics to where the population was. This, along with an effective media campaign that answered questions and dispelled misinformation, was particularly important in getting people, especially young people, vaccinated. A nationwide culture of trust in doctors was very important in the vaccination success.
