This is actually turning out to be a real scandal in Germany and the Low Countries. It illustrates perfectly what is wrong with the EU, wanting to take control of vaccine procurement, then putting so many of the eggs in the basket of the Sanofi vaccine for the sake of the optics of European unity, even though it's miles away from approval. Add to that the delay in getting other vaccines approved.

Same goes for ventilator procurement, the member state took control of that too eventually. At some point someone may work out how many lives this has all cost!!
The EU and Germany put a lot of financial support into the development of the BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine; without this support, it would have been developed much later or maybe not at all.
As a result of the EU taking control of vaccine procurement, the EU has agreed pays only 15.50 euros per dose for the Pfizer and BioNTech lower than the US - what does the UK pay?
