EU sues AstraZeneca over vaccine deliveries

The European Commission launched legal action against AstraZeneca over the company's failure to deliver the agreed-upon doses of its coronavirus vaccine to the bloc, a spokesperson for the Commission confirmed on Monday.

"The company has not been in the position to come up with a reliable strategy to ensure timely delivery of vaccines," the spokesperson said at a press conference.

Last week, Ireland's Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly said that a legal case has been initiated by the European Commission against AstraZeneca over failing to comply with its contractual obligations with the EU and that Ireland has joined the challenge.
