‘We need to cooperate!’ Boris hits out at EU over threat to block Covid vaccine

Boris Johnson: EU expected to honour vaccine exports to UK

The Prime Minister was quizzed on the EU’s threat to the UK regarding the delivery of the Pfizer vaccine to Britain following AstraZeneca informing the trading bloc that there would be a decrease in the number of vaccines available to them. Mr Johnson called on the European Union to cooperate with the UK Government rather than work against them.

“Can we get a response from you to that?”

Mr Johnson told the coronavirus briefing: “On supply from vaccines abroad to this country, I have got total confidence in our supplies.

“We have been over this many times over the last days and hours.

We will continue and we fully expect that will happen.”
