French President Macron Welcomes EU Curb on AstraZeneca Vaccine

PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron welcomed the decision from the European Union not to renew its order for the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

Macron said the EU policy is aiming at “responding in particular to the variants… We see that some other vaccines are more efficient.”

EU Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton said Sunday the EU Commission has not ordered AstraZeneca shots for after June. Two weeks ago, the EU launched legal proceedings against the pharmaceutical group for allegedly failing to respect the terms of its contract.

In France, the variant first identified in Britain has become largely dominant and the South African variant represents only a small percentage of cases.

Across the Channel, the British government has made the AstraZeneca vaccine the centerpiece of its successful vaccination campaign.
