    She's still going on about it - Ursula von der Leyen accuses UK of compromising on vaccine safety | World news | The Guardian

    The vaccination programme in the UK has enjoyed a head start through compromising on “safety and efficacy” safeguards, the European commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, has claimed.

    The former German defence minister, who took command of the EU’s executive branch in 2019, said she had a responsibility to take time to ensure the success of the bloc’s mass vaccination programme.

    In the face of heavy criticism, including from her predecessor, Jean-Claude Juncker, Von der Leyen said she was committed to her role and should be judged at the end of her term in 2024.

    “Some countries started to vaccinate a little before Europe, it is true,” she said, asked about the UK. “But they resorted to emergency, 24-hour marketing authorisation procedures.


    “The commission and the member states agreed not to compromise with the safety and efficacy requirements linked to the authorisation of a vaccine. Time had to be taken to analyse the data, which, even minimised, takes three to four weeks.

    “So, yes, Europe left it later, but it was the right decision. I remind you that a vaccine is the injection of an active biological substance into a healthy body. We are talking about mass vaccination here, it is a gigantic responsibility.”

    So to summarise the UK's successful strategy has more to do with luck than a "nimble" bureacracy.
    Maybe the UK got lucky, but the EU ****ed up, in part due to bureaucracy - the simple fact they sat on contracts for 3 months overrides opinion piece spin.

    Are you based in the UK? I'm struggling to reconcile why you're so adamant to paint the UK in a bad light on this particular topic.

    The output of factories depends on biological processes such as the growth of cell cultures. And the ones in AstraZeneca’s Belgian plant didn’t play along, even as their siblings at facilities in Britain and elsewhere kept sprouting.

    The EU is back on schedule with the Pfizer vaccine.

    Oh victory after threatening the Irish peace process is that AZ will attempt to provide half the doses they originally promised.

    Von der Leyen said late Sunday on Twitter that the Anglo-Swedish drugmaker would start deliveries one week earlier than scheduled and expand manufacturing. The extra doses would bring the total to 40 million, only about half of what the EU had expected from Astra through March.
    Luckily as we can see from that link the EU are storming ahead with 2.3% (2.39% if you are German) of their population inoculated. The incompetent Brexit riddled UK at 11.4% and the land of Trump's total incompetence at 7.8% (unless that is all down to Biden in his first week).

    Of course other charts are available, the UAE seems to be doing well. Malta on 3 times better than Germany.

    Even Ireland is beating the rest of the EU on 3.27%

    What do you expect from a daily express reader?

    Indeed and if the supply issues were due to the "bumbling bureaucracy" why is there only a problem with the Astra-Zeneca vaccine but not with Pfizer, I would expect all vaccine manufacturers to be affected. Interestingly other manufacturers seem to be stepping in to cover the shortfall without 6 months notice. The US also ordered their vaccines 3 months after the UK and have no issues.

    The two companies are “back to the original schedule of vaccine dose deliveries” to the EU after modifications to a facility in Puurs, Belgium, BioNTech said.
