Report: Italy blocks AstraZeneca vaccine shipment to Australia

Italy has blocked a shipment of 250,000 Oxford/AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccines to Australia, the Financial Times reported on Thursday citing official sources.

According to the report, Italy informed Brussels of its decision last week, but the European Commission decided not to object to the decision.

At the end of January, the European Commission announced the new export regime for COVID-19 vaccines. However, Italy is the first country to block a vaccine shipment so far.
