EU angry as AstraZeneca cuts supply of Covid-19 vaccine

 

An AstraZeneca document dated March 10 shows AstraZeneca expects to have delivered 30-m doses to the EU by the end of March, 10-m fewer than pledged in February, reported Business Day (12 March 2021)

AstraZeneca has again angered the EU by scaling back deliveries of Covid-19 vaccines, but got a boost on Friday when the World Health Organisation (WHO) dismissed fears that have prompted countries in Europe and Asia to suspend use of the shot. EU regulators have dismissed scattered reports of blood clots in people who had received the AstraZeneca vaccine, but on Friday Thailand joined a handful of European countries in suspending use of the shot — the first and cheapest to be developed and launched at volume around the world.
