The European Union (unelected) Directorate have banned member states of the Union from purchasing for their citizens’ vaccines in the free market.
EU member states will be allowed to use only official EU-approved Covid-19 vaccines, Brussels said in response to remarks by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban that Budapest was negotiating for shots with Russia and China.
‘There is no question that any vaccine that is, or could be, made available on the territory of the European Union would have to comply both with the quality standards that are expected for these types of products in the EU and follow the approval procedures’ currently in effect, European Commission spokesman Eric Mamer said at a press conference on Friday, asked about Orban’s comments.
While not calling out Orban by name, Mamer’s comments came after Hungarian PM said Budapest was talking to Beijing and Moscow and hoping to have two or three different vaccines by early next year.
The first shipment of vaccines should arrive in December or January. Hungary will be able to ’declare victory over the pandemic’ by next spring, Orban said on Friday in a radio interview.
However, the bloc has signed agreements with AstraZeneca, Sanofi-GSK, and Johnson and Johnson for allegedly safe and effective vaccines against the coronavirus, once they complete the clinical trials.
According to the small print, these EU sponsored corporate suppliers, beneficiaries of massive investments by the EU political caste, will not be legally liable in the event of a disaster; i.e. thalidomide or as is currently occurring in South Korea.
‘We are not in negotiations with either Russian or Chinese companies,’ Mamer added. ’That is the European vaccine strategy. All member states have signed up to this process.’
Johnson & Johnson paused its trials in mid-October, citing an ’unexplained illness’ in one of the participants. AstraZeneca had also halted their trials over a UK volunteer experiencing complications but restarted them even after a Brazilian volunteer died on October 20.
Russia was the first in the world to register a coronavirus vaccine. Named Sputnik V, it is based on the adenoviral vector platform previously studied and considered safe and is currently undergoing phase-three trials. Moscow has applied for the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Emergency Use Listing program, which would allow accelerated approval of the vaccine for use.
Brussels and Washington have objected to the Russian vaccine, ostensibly on the grounds of safety. The US also appears to have leaned on governments to pressure them away from ‘Sputnik V’. On October 16, the US embassy in Kyiv announced that Ukraine ’will NOT be buying Russia’s [Covid-19] vaccine, which they claim has not passed clinical trials for safety!’
Meanwhile, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has expressed distrust of Western pharmaceutical companies, accusing them of being ‘all about profit’. Duterte said he would seek a deal to buy the vaccine from China or Russia, which Manila was prepared to pay for.
Some 2,000 doses of the Russian vaccine were sent to Venezuela in early October, after the authorities in Caracas, asked for help due to US and EU sanctions ravaging the country’s healthcare system.
Meanwhile, in South (Capitalist) Korea, The country’s public health agency, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA), announced on Saturday that 83 people in total have died after participating in a free vaccination initiative billed as a way to offset potential complications from Covid-19.
