AstraZeneca not planning to export jabs from Italy plant other than to Covax countries, Health News, ET HealthWorld

Milan: AstraZeneca said on Wednesday it does not currently plan to export any vaccine doses from the plant in the Italian town of Anagni other than to countries of the Covax vaccine-sharing scheme.

The Anglo-Swedish pharma group said that 13 million doses in the plant, south-east of Italy’s capital Rome, were waiting for quality checks to be dispatched to low-income countries, as per EU agreements.

A further 16 million jabs were also awaiting quality controls in order to be sent to Europe, the company said in a statement, without giving further details.

It added that it was incorrect to describe the doses as “stockpile”.
