Australia Asks European Commission To Review Italy’s Block On Vaccine Shipments

A health care worker in Sydney, Australia receives their COVID-19 vaccination this month. Italian authorities got the European Commission to block a shipment of 250,700 doses of vaccine destined for Australia from Europe this week.

The blocked shipment of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines was the first intervention by the EU since the bloc approved rules that could restrict vaccine exports to non-member nations.
