EU About to Block Vaccine For the UK.

It just gets worse, what a shower of vindictive nasties they are, it seems this is the doing of that woman Commission president Ms von der Leyen..

Typical of the vindictive b'stards and I hope their people remember how they have handled the purchase of vaccines when all this is eventually over

Where do the UK’s vaccines come from?

The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is made at two factories in Oxfordshire and Staffordshire, before being put into glass vials at a facility in Wrexham, north Wales. The Pfizer vaccine is imported to the UK from a plant in Belgium.

Why is vaccine supply going to fall?

The manufacture of vaccines is an inherently unpredictable biological process. Experts compare it to brewing, rather than making products in a factory: if anything goes wrong the knock-on effects can drastically change the outcomes, and there is a certain amount of random variation which makes it impossible to know in advance how many doses will be available from a given batch. AstraZeneca’s facilities in Europe, for example, have repeatedly fallen short of expectations.

Is this because of the row with the EU?

No. Whitehall insiders insist that Brussels’ threat to block vaccine exports in future has no link to the expected shortfall over April.

Hyped up headlines unhelpful.

Re: EU About to Block Vaccine For the UK.

Very strange things going on here ??
Seems EU politicians are at odds with EU medical regulators ??
All data available at the moment confirms that the alleged blood
clot problem is not a problem at all as the numbers of clot cases
so far reported are BELOW the normal incidence of blood clots in
the general population. ??
What does this tell you??

Re: EU About to Block Vaccine For the UK.

I read somewhere today (Metro? DE?) that one of the precursors used in the production of the Pfizer vaccine is produced in the UK, the USA and, I think, Canada. If UVdLiar wants to ban exports of the Pfizer jab to us, all we have to do is stop sending the precursor over to the EU.

Correct; some essential components of the Pfizer/Biontech vaccine are indeed sourced from here in the UK.
Yorkshire in fact, from British firm Avanti Polar Lipids which is supplying four essential components in a five-year deal with Pfizer.
Without these the EU's Pfizer production would be ......... shall we say "challenging"?


Isn't it strange how VD Leyen never mentions that, or how Oxford & AstraZeneca actually helped to set up the numerous AZ production facilities within the EU.

How can the EU block our supplies of AZ manufactured in India?

Re: EU About to Block Vaccine For the UK.

The EU have already blocked 250000 AZ doses destined for Australia and are being horrid about our lack of a climate policy. No FTA for them!

It's a good job we don't have any armed forces left or we could have ended up at war with these b'stards.
