EU: AstraZeneca's vaccine delivery plan unacceptable

European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Stella Kyriakides (pictured) dismissed on Monday AstraZeneca PLC's new plan of deliveries of its vaccine against COVID-19 as unacceptable for the European Union.

"The EU has pre-financed the development of the vaccine and the production and wants to see the return," she said. "The EU wants to know exactly which doses have been produced by AstraZeneca and where exactly so far and if or to whom they have been delivered."

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel both urged AstraZeneca to respect previously agreed deadlines for deliveries.
