  1. ALERT DEVELOPING COUNTRIES LIKE A&B…Canada will aggressively pursue Serum Institute India for supplies ASAP…. Canada will have to pay more per vial than us… Will that move them up the queue for vaccine vials???
    This will put the PM’s negotiations for a ‘likely’ 100,00 AstraZeneca vials in jeopardy.

  2. 26-2-2021 9.42am Minister of Information admits on ABS TV the 100,000 vials the PM is negotiating that are ‘likely’ MAY NOT BE LIKELY AT ALL AS INDIA IS UNDER VACCINATING THEIR OWN PEOPLE & PUSHING FOR THE VACVINES BEING PRODUCED IN INDIA TO BE DIVERTED TO THE INDIAN POPULATION!!!

  3. German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she won’t take AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine.
    The vaccine has been approved for only people under 65 in Germany, and Merkel is 66.
