France will Receive Fewer Doses of Covid-19 Vaccine than expected in June

France expects about 28 million doses of vaccine received during the month of June, less than the 32 million expected according to the latest forecasts.  A drop in deliveries of the Janssen vaccine to Europe, the Ministry of the Economy said on Tuesday.

“This revision does not call into question our vaccination objectives for June 15 (30 million first injections), or the vaccination campaign”, relativized Bercy.

The latest forecasts were based on a total since the first deliveries in December of 76.7 million doses received at the end of June for the four vaccines authorized in Europe. This total will therefore be reduced by around 4 million.

“In total for June, we expect 28 million doses, so there is a difference from last week’s forecast, which was 32 million doses. This is explained by the updated forecast (for the vaccine) Janssen “, after the blocking in April of batches of active substances from the United States to Europe, added the Ministry of the Economy.

This blockage followed problems of non-compliance in an American plant of the firm Emergent BioSolutions, located in Baltimore
