European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen says the EU was allowing exports of COVID-19 vaccines, mostly from Pfizer and its partner BioNTech, as well as Moderna, as reported in Fidelity.
She indicated that approximately 95% of EU-made vaccines that had been exported since January 30 were made by Pfizer/BioNTech, and the remainder by Moderna, adding that both were honouring their supply contracts with the bloc.
However, regarding AstraZeneca's exports, the EU was keeping "a very close eye" because of the company's shortfalls in deliveries to the region.
Meanwhile, von der Leyen suggested that the US and the UK had systems in place that effectively blocked the export of COVID-19 vaccines.
