LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s Minister for COVID Vaccine Deployment Nadhim Zahawi said on Tuesday he was confident both AstraZeneca and Pfizer would honour their COVID-19 vaccine supply agreements with the UK.

Responding to reports that the European Union had threatened to block supplies of vaccines to the United Kingdom, he told Sky News: “I’m confident that they (AstraZeneca and Pfizer) will both deliver for us the quantities that we need to meet our mid-February target and of course beyond that.”
