Italy blocks export of 250,000 AstraZeneca doses destined for Australia
Italy has blocked the export of a shipment of 250,000 doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine to Australia.
It’s understood the European Commission has backed the move.
It comes amid a stoush between the European Union and AstraZeneca, after the vaccine producer failed to meet the production targets set out in its contract.
It’s understood to be the first time a European country has blocked a shipment.
At this stage, there’s been no official comment from Italy, the EU or AstraZeneca.
