  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Covid-19 vaccine race: Are the jabs becoming political?” – below is their description.

    The race for the Covid vaccine has entered the next phase. And things appear to be getting political. There are several vaccines in circulation right now, but only two cleared for use in the EU. And there is now a shortage of vaccines across the bloc and high level anger. So the three way row is on between the UK, the EU and Astra Zeneca, the supplier who says it cannot fulfil a 400 million dose order for Brussels.
