AstraZeneca late with vaccine deliveries - report

AstraZeneca's delivery of vaccines will take longer than expected, Bild reported on Friday. The company has informed the European Commission that it won't be able to deliver as many vaccines as planned right after it gets approval which is expected to come by the end of the month.

The German newspaper noted that the 56,5 million doses ordered by Berlin will be cut significantly while Austrian media said that Austria will be getting 600,000 vaccine doses in the first quarter of the year instead of 2 million doses.

Earlier, Pfizer said that it is having some vaccine delivery issues, meaning that it will also reduce its deliveries to Europe and Mexico.
