Reports from Italy says its government has blocked the export of an Oxford-Astrazeneca Vaccine shipment to Australia.
The decision affects 250,000 doses of the vaccine produced at an AstraZeneca facility in Italy.
Italy is the first EU contrary to use the bloc’s new regulations allowing exports to be stopped if the company providing the vaccine has failed to meet its obligations to the EU.
Australia said losing one shipment would not badly affect its rollout.
