Taoiseach Micheál Martin on EU Vaccine Nationalism

Speaking on RTE News At One this afternoon, Irish Taoiseach Micheál Martin slapped down Brussels for “counterproductive” sabre rattling vaccine nationalism:

“If you take the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine, 280 materials go into making the Pfizer vaccine. There are 86 suppliers supply those materials from 19 countries around the world. You start putting up barriers, other countries may follow suit in terms of those vital raw materials that are required to make the vaccine.”

“These are not EU vaccines. These are vaccines paid for by other countries that are manufactured in Europe.”
