Concerned EU representatives
For the further negotiations between the EU and Pfizer, the cross-sections from individual member states are not exactly helpful, reports Politico. Some diplomats expressed concern that the deal for 100 million vaccine doses could even burst by the end of the year. “Solidarity is a one-way street to Vienna,” a diplomat is quoted as saying.
The total amount of vaccine that will be delivered to EU member states by the end of 2021 is 500 million vaccine doses.
Some representatives in Brussels seem to be unclear as to whether a single country can cancel the subcontract at all. Austria has long since approved the basic agreement between the EU and Pfizer.
