    EU threatens to block exports of Pfizer Covid vaccine

    Britain's Covid vaccine supply is in jeopardy after the EU threatened to block exports of the Belgian-made Pfizer jabs amid a row with UK-based AstraZeneca.

    Brussels decided to impose tighter controls on exports after reacting with fury to the news that AstraZeneca will deliver 50 million fewer doses to the EU than it had expected.

    Ministers now fear deliveries of the Pfizer jabs will – at best – be delayed by extra paperwork and that the EU could try to stop doses being sent to non-EU countries after saying it will "take any action required to protect its citizens".

        If it wasn't for *that* we wouldn't have any vaccine at all. Possibly.

          Oh wow, without B....t Astrazeneca and Oxford would have disappeared long before 2020!

            Because they have 'production problems', in Belgium, ironically.

              And whose fault is it that large scale vaccine manufacturing capacity is not in the UK?

                  I think we can safely assume that's about to change.

                    Britain is independent of the EU therefore it doesn't affect Britain as they can simply buy it elsewhere or have the freedom to subsidise a new factory and make it there.
