O chanceler austríaco Sebastian Kurz (Foto) hoxe (16 de marzo) organizou unha reunión con aliados de Europa do Leste, incluído o primeiro ministro búlgaro Boyko Borissov e líderes checos, eslovenos, letóns e croatas, para pedir un cambio na forma en que a Unión Europea distribúe as vacinas COVID-19 despois de queixarse ​​de que era desigual.

Showing a chart, Kurz said: “I’m not sure you can see this but if you have a look here you will see that the majority of member states has administered between 10 and 12 vaccinations per 100 inhabitants. Austria is exactly in the middle on 12th place.

“It shows very clearly that in Malta for example, 27 vaccinations were administered and five in other countries. This means that we are in a situation where some member states will have vaccinated their population by the beginning or middle of May while for others, it will take six, eight or ten weeks longer. We believe that’s a problem.”

Estes líderes afirman que a distribución non se producía de acordo coas poboacións nacionais proporcionalmente, como se acordara. Non obstante, a Comisión Europea emitiu un comunicado de prensa, tras os comentarios de Kurz o venres pasado (12 de marzo), que suxeriu que a asignación era un "bazar". A Comisión escribiu: "A asignación de doses de vacinas segundo os acordos de compra anticipada seguiu un proceso transparente.

“The Commission agrees with recent statements by several member states that the most equitable solution for the allocation of doses of vaccines is on the basis of a pro-rata division based on the population of each member state. This is the solution that the Commission proposed for all advance purchase agreements. It is a fair solution as the virus strikes equally everywhere, in all parts of the EU.”

Kurz’s opponents have accused him of trying to deflect blame away from his government for the relatively slow pace of vaccinations.

A UE ten un mecanismo para redistribuír as doses cando outros non aceptan a súa asignación proporcional completa e a Comisión dixo que corresponde aos Estados membros decidir se queren volver a un método estritamente baseado na poboación.

The “bazaar” that Kurz refers to has been the choice of member states who decided to depart from the Commission’s proposal by adding flexibility that allows a different distribution of doses, taking into account the epidemiological situation and the vaccination needs of each country. Under this system, if a member state decides not to take up its pro-rata allocation, the doses are redistributed among the other interested member states.

A Comisión tamén afirmou que correspondía aos Estados membros atopar un acordo se desexaban volver á base proporcional.

In a tweet, Kurz acknowledged that the situation was not the EU’s fault, but nevertheless called on the EU to act: “Already on 21 January, all heads of state and government agreed on a distribution according to the population key – but this is currently not being implemented. This is not the fault of the EU, but of the post-order delivery system.”
