AstraZeneca vows to 'work tirelessly' to meet EU supply goals

AstraZeneca plc expressed on Monday its "full commitment" to meeting the supply goals in regard to the COVID-19 vaccine it developed jointly with Oxford University, adding it will "work tirelessly" towards making good on the agreement it reached with the European Union.

The president of the pharmaceutical company's Ireland division, Daniel Wygal, sent a letter to the country's Committee on Health, pledging determination to "supply the agreed quantities" to the members of the EU.

The Irish health officials predicted earlier that the inoculation of the country's population will be finished by autumn. A week ago, the country stopped using AstraZeneca's Vaxzevria jab in most people under 60.
