EU anger over reduced Pfizer vaccine deliveries

Several EU countries are receiving significantly fewer doses of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine than expected, after the US firm slowed shipments.

 

Six nations called the situation “unacceptable” and warned it “decreases the credibility of the vaccination process”.

 

Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia urged the EU to apply pressure on Pfizer-BioNTech.

 

Pfizer said the reduced deliveries are a temporary issue.

 

In a statement on Friday, the drugmaker said shipments were being affected by changes to its manufacturing processes designed to boost production.
