The European Union’s executive branch has commenced legal action against AstraZeneca for breaching the terms of its contract with the EU. It holds AstraZeneca responsible for partly delaying their vaccine rollout.
AstraZeneca’s contract with the EU, signed last August, foresaw an initial 300 million doses for distribution among member countries, with an option for a further 100 million.
AstraZeneca had hoped to deliver 80 million doses in the first quarter of 2021, but only 30 million were sent. According to the EU, the company is now set to provide 70 million doses in the second quarter, rather than the 180 million it had promised.
AstraZeneca said in a statement that it “regrets” the commission’s decision to take legal action and it will “strongly defend” itself in court.
