Brexit news latest – EU threatens to BLOCK UK’s Pfizer vaccine supply as punishment for getting fewer AstraZeneca jabs

THE EU has threatened to block supplies of the Pfizer vaccine heading to the UK after a row over AstraZeneca jabs.

Yesterday it was revealed that, due to delays approving the vaccine and the EU’s joint-procurement system, the bloc will receive just 30 million doses of the UK-made AstraZeneca rather than the 80 million they ordered.

The development has left the EU fuming and as punishment MEPs are threatening to hinder supplies of the lifesaving Belgium-made Pfizer vaccine heading into Britain.

This morning vaccines minister Nadim Zahawi warned eurocrats “no-one is safe until the whole world is safe” in a broadside at the bloc’s move to control exports as he blasted the EU’s “vaccine nationalism”.
