Brexit news latest – EU told to consider legal action amid bitter row over AstraZeneca vaccine supply

THE European Union has ramped up threats to AstraZeneca – saying it will take legal action unless they deliver the shots promised to member states.

This comes in the midst of a vicious vaccine war between the EU and Britain, as Brussels demands the UK hands over some of its jabs because of a shortage.

EU member states are far behind Israel, the United Kingdom and the United States in rolling out vaccines.

Meanwhile, the UK has just secured 120m doses of vaccines – American company Novavax is set to make 60m of these doses in Teesside.

The Novavax jab shows 60% effectiveness against the South African variant and offers 86% protection against the new UK strain.
