Of our community. ” The commissioner also defended the time it took for the union to approve the vaccines, an act it defined as “a vital investment in creating trust and confidence among the public.”
Von Der Lane’s remarks come in the wake of criticism the EU has received for its handling of vaccines against the virus to EU member states.

However, AstraZinka recently announced that it will partner with German company IDT Biologika to create more vaccines for Europe.
