EU to block vaccine exports amid AstraZeneca delivery spat

The World Health Organization is warning against what it calls vaccine nationalism after the European Union launched a scheme that could block exports of coronavirus vaccines.

It’s the latest development in a row between the EU and drug maker AstraZeneca.

EU health authorities approved the company’s jab on Friday.

But Brussels says it has failed to supply the vaccine in the quantities promised – and says the controls are needed to ensure export orders aren’t fulfilled first.
