  • ITV News published this video item, entitled “Why are Italians refusing the AstraZeneca vaccine? | ITV News” – below is their description.

    With EU countries lagging someway behind the UK in vaccinations – you might have thought people there would be keen to have any kind of jab.

    Not so. In many EU countries they consider the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine second best – to either the Pfizer or Moderna jabs.

    Why so? Well a few of their own politicians have been talking it down, some say, to cover the EU being slow to complete contracts.

    All of which has backfired, and reduced the take-up of the Oxford jab.
