Stopping the export of some doses of AstraZeneca anti-covid vaccine from Italy to Australia? A message to the company from the EU, namely to respect delivery times. This is said by the chief spokesman of the European Commission Eric Mamer, following the first implementation of the mechanism for the authorization of exports of anti Covid vaccines decided by the EU at the end of January.
The decision to ban the export of 250,000 doses of anti-Covid vaccine produced by AstraZeneca and destined for Australia, taken by the European Commission on a proposal from Italy, is in fact “a message to the company” in question, namely AstraZeneca. “We expect businesses to do their utmost to meet delivery commitments“Mamer explained during the press briefing in Brussels. So far, adds the spokesperson for Trade Miriam Garcìa Ferrer, 174 exports of vaccines have been authorized by the EU, to about thirty countries.
