EU has not renewed order for AstraZeneca vaccine

The European Union has not renewed order for Astra Zenaca vaccine for COVID_19, the European Union’s Internal Market Commissioner said. 

“We have not renewed the order for after June. We’ll see what will happen next,” Thierry Breton was quoted by French radio France Inter. 

The announcement comes a day after the European Union committed  its support for  procuring Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine by agreeing to a massive contract extension for a potential 1.8 billion doses through 2023.
