Calls to 'not buy' Russian and Chinese vaccines in Europe
The COVID-19 vaccines, which are seen as 'Western' vaccines, Chinese vaccines and Russian vaccines by politicians and press organizations due to the vaccine nationalism and the inhomogeneity of the scientific processes of the countries, have recently created controversy within the European Union. Clement Beaune, the Minister of EU Affairs of France, told RTL Radio, urging EU countries not to take Russian and Chinese vaccines in Europe without approval in order not to risk the unity of the bloc and public health.
The SputnikV vaccine is currently approved in Hungary, in Slovakia and Czechia under evaluation. Hungary has already started vaccinating with both the Sinopharm vaccine and SputnikV. The drug authority EMA announced last week that it started its SputnikV review, but even if the EMA approves, the European Commission may choose not to receive Sputnik or any Chinese vaccine in its joint purchases. On the other hand, the Johnon & Johnson vaccine, which was developed much later than SputnikV, could get European approval on March 11.
