    Isn't the low progress of the vaccine simply due to shortage of supplies, rather than incompetence in delivery? I'd assume that if they've not approved AZ for the over 65s, they'll start on the over 60s, or over 55s.
    Well as they have insulted one of the leading vaccine manufacturers do you think that will improve then?

    That has led to citizens not turning up for their jab in their thousands. Strangely Malta is at 5% of population vaccinated the rest are much less.


    According to their own people its fairly clear where the blame lies.

    According to the survey, which was carried out by Kekst CNC and shared with POLITICO ahead of publication, 51 percent of German respondents said the European Union has handled the vaccine rollout badly, a view shared by 35 percent of French and 24 percent of Swedish respondents.

    In the U.K., 45 percent said the EU has done a bad job, while 77 percent said they approved of their government's track record on vaccination. By contrast, only 23 percent of Germans, 19 percent of Swedes and 18 percent of French respondents took a similarly generous view of their respective national vaccine rollouts.

            Always a mistake yes. But the main driver is lack of supplies - across Europe. Even without AZ.

              And why would that be?

              Instead, EU member states were leaned upon by Brussels to support a collective endeavour, which delayed the placing of orders for the AstraZeneca vaccine by three months. Pascal Soriot, AstraZeneca’s chief executive, says the UK’s three-month head start was important because it allowed glitches in the production process to be sorted out.

              It was not until the autumn that the EU placed orders for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (even though the breakthrough was made in a German lab) and even later before it got round to ordering some of the Moderna vaccine. Last Friday, the pharma company Novavax said it had developed a vaccine that was effective against Covid-19. The UK has pre-ordered 60m doses: the EU none.

              Many people — including health workers — are skipping appointments or refusing to sign up for the AstraZeneca shot, which they fear is less effective than the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the officials say. As a result, two weeks after the first delivery of 1.45 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine arrived in Germany, only 270,986 have been administered, according to data collected by the public health authority, the Robert Koch Institute.

                  Ahh but we got their first.

                  Boris finally found a chum that wasn't useless so she sorted it out and didn't waste £37B in doing so.
