By ordering too little too late of the vaccine – maybe we can blow it now with the Chinese and Russian COVID vaccines too.
Coronavirus: Germany open to Chinese and Russian vaccines amid delays – Health Minister Jens Spahn says there is no obstacle to the use of the Sputnik V and Sinopharm vaccines if they receive EU approval. Chancellor Angela Merkel is due to hold a summit Monday to overcome a vaccine shortage.
Spahn’s remarks about Chinese and Russian vaccines come days after he admitted that Germany faces at least a shortfall of vaccines that could continue until April.
Spahn took to social media to warn that the German government will struggle to procure enough shots for the next months.
“We will still have at least 10 tough weeks with a shortage of vaccine,” he tweeted on Thursday.
