Many Countries Refusing to Purchase Vaccines

Modena’s CEO is complaining about having to ‘throw away’ 30 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, “We also tried to reach out to governments to see if anyone would want these vaccines, but it failed completely because no one wants them.”

Demand for vaccines is decreasing as some countries are seeking to modify so-called advance purchase agreements with producers due to the impact of the war in Ukraine and the budgetary costs of resettling refugees, which have become strained.

In another letter, the Bulgarian Ministry of Health called for an ‘open dialogue’ with the Commission and pharmaceutical companies, arguing that the current arrangement force member states to “buy large quantities of vaccines they don’t need.”

In a joint letter to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen late last month, the prime ministers of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania wrote that restructuring deals with suppliers could empower the member states, “The right to suspend or completely cancel the delivery of vaccines with a short shelf life.”
