Slow vaccination in Slovakia as government errs

EU leaders refused to change the vaccine distribution key at their summit on Thursday. The pace of supplies will depend on the overall order volume and not on population. Countries such as Austria and Slovakia lobbied for the change as they have not used up their allotment and will receive less vaccines per capita in the second quarter than other countries. Germany was against the change and proposed that EU ambassadors discuss the mater further.Slovakia ordered just 1.4m of this year’s quota of 2.4m Johnson & Johnson vaccines to prevent oversupply. As a result, the country now faces much slower supplies compared to countries using up their entire allocations. Similarly, Slovakia gave up 3m Pfizer vaccines and faces slower supplies of this vaccine as well. Johnson & Johnson will start delivering its vaccine to the EU in mid-April.
