According to reports in several media citing the Ministry of Health, AstraZeneca could deliver less vaccine to the EU than originally planned. For Austria, this would mean that only 600,000 vaccine doses could be delivered in the first quarter instead of 2,000,000. For the time being, there was no official confirmation from the Ministry of Health or AstraZeneca. An EU decision on the approval of the AstraZeneca vaccine is expected on January 29.

According to the insider information, domestic authorities were informed of this today after speaking with AstraZeneca representatives in a video conference. The company apparently now wants to supply to other countries outside the EU first.

For now, the health ministry said the rumored reductions in supply volumes for the first quarter were “completely unacceptable.” “Promised delivery quantities must be met,” APA quoted the ministry as saying, which at the same time referred to the additional quantities of the vaccine purchased from Pfizer and Biontech.

It is still unclear whether this could affect the government’s vaccination plan. Austria’s vaccination plan calls for vaccinating everyone over the age of 65 who wants it by the end of March. That’s 1.7 million people. Orders have been placed for 937,950 doses by Pfizer, 200,000 doses by Moderna and 2.16 million by AstraZeneca.
