EU Reaps What it Has Sown


Just weeks ago, the European Union was clamoring for AstraZeneca Plc’s Covid-19 vaccine. Now, fewer than one-tenth of the doses delivered to Germany have been administered in the initial days of the roll-out, and some health-care workers say they’re concerned about side effects.

Germany isn’t alone: Some French health workers are also pushing to get shots from Moderna Inc., Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE instead.

The EU vaccine campaign is already far behind that of the U.S. and U.K., and catching up will be impossible in the near term unless people are willing to take the 300 million shots the bloc ordered from AstraZeneca. 

Badmouthing the AZ vaccine, in order to cover up the incompetence of Commission, has now come back to bite the EU on the arse.
