Austria Decides to Buy a Vaccine from Russia
Austria Decides to Buy a Vaccine from Russia. Austrian Prime Minister Sebastian Kurz said that they decided to buy the Russian vaccine Sputnik V to get out of the crisis faster and return to normal.
Kurz, who gave information on the subject on Twitter, stated that the connection with Russia has come to an end and that the final result will be obtained within a week.
According to the agreement, 200,000 doses of vaccine will be delivered to Austria in April, 500,000 doses in May and 300,000 doses in June.
GIVES BIONTECH TO OTHER COUNTRIES
Austria wants to end vaccination and open tourism completely, and has also opposed priority distribution of BioNTech vaccine to other countries.
Germany waived 500,000 vaccines and decided to give them to Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia and Slovakia. Together with other EU countries, 2.8 million vaccine deliveries were abandoned in favor of these countries. This caused delay in vaccination in many countries, especially in Germany.
In the Vaccine Passport prepared by the EU, the EU country will be able to process the vaccine that is not approved in the EU but has been made. The European Medicines Agency EMA, on the other hand, still continues its inspections on the Russian vaccine.
