[Central News Agency]One month after the citizens of the European Union (EU) began to administer the Wuhan pneumonia vaccine, the supply of two pharmaceutical companies, including AstraZeneca and Pfizer, suddenly decreased, and the relationship with the EU became tight. German Health Minister Spann today supports the EU proposal to restrict vaccine exports.

Reuters reported that the European Union has proposed setting up a vaccine export registration system. It is proposed to require pharmaceutical companies that produce Wuhan pneumonia (COVID-19) vaccines in the EU to export vaccines to third countries. They must register in advance.

The delay in supply of vaccines by the British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, coupled with other supply problems, has disappointed the European Union.

Jens Spahn told ZDF today: “I can understand the production problems, but everyone should be affected in the same way.”

Spahn said, “This is not a priority for Europe, but for Europe to get its due share fairly,” so it is reasonable to restrict vaccine exports.

AstraZeneca told the 27-nation European Union on the 22nd that the company would not be able to reach its vaccine supply target by the end of March, and the EU’s anti-epidemic action was hit again. Prior to this, Pfizer announced a temporary slowdown in vaccine supply.

AstraZeneca said yesterday that the CEO has told the European Union that the company is doing everything it can to get the vaccines for millions of Europeans as soon as possible.

An EU official told Reuters that the EU finalized an agreement with AstraZeneca in August last year to obtain at least 300 million doses of vaccines and the option to purchase an additional 100 million doses of vaccines. At that time, AstraZeneca had received 300 million doses. An advance payment of 36 million euros (about NT$11.4 billion). This is the first COVID-19 vaccine agreement signed by the European Union.

But before the EU reached an agreement, the United States spent as much as US$1.2 billion to obtain 300 million doses of vaccines in May last year; the United Kingdom also used 84 million pounds (about NT$3.210 billion) to obtain 100 million doses in May last year. vaccine.
