Vaccine supply set-back: UK handed huge blow as Moderna to cut delivery target


Just days after the vaccine was rolled out across the UK, the pharmaceutical company have said deliveries to Britain will be reduced. This will affect the number of doses previously expected to be delivered by the end of June.

In a statement, Moderna said: “The trajectory of vaccine manufacturing ramp-up is not linear, and despite best efforts, there is a shortfall in previously estimated doses.

“Vaccine manufacturing is a highly complex process and a number of elements, including human and material resources, have factored into this volatility.”

The company also revealed Canada – which is entering its third wave of the pandemic – would receive nearly half of its expected deliveries.
