EU official expects AstraZeneca to miss second-quarter vaccine supply by half

AstraZeneca expects to deliver less than half the Covid-19 vaccines it was contracted to supply the European Union in the second quarter, an EU official told Reuters.

The expected shortfall, which has not previously been reported, comes after a big reduction in supplies in the first quarter and could hit the EU's ability to meet its target of vaccinating 70% of adults by the summer.

The EU official, who is directly involved in talks with the Anglo-Swedish drugmaker, said the company had told the bloc during internal meetings that it "would deliver less than 90 million doses in the second quarter".
