Belgian Court orders AZ to make vaccine deliveries

Sunday 20 June 2021


The Court of First Instance of Brussels has granted interim measures in a case brought by the European Commission and the 27 EU member states against AstraZeneca Plc, giving deadlines for the delivery of specific quantities of the company’s Covid-19 vaccine to the EU. The Commission brought the lawsuit, claiming that AstraZeneca had not made its “best reasonable effort” to deliver supplies covered by an advance purchase agreement entered into by the parties in 2020.
