(Apr. 7) The European Union failed to form a united response to links between AstraZeneca Plc’s Covid-19 vaccine and a rare type of blood clots, missing an opportunity to move on from what’s been a sluggish inoculation program so far. At a meeting that ran until late Wednesday, EU health ministers promised to continue discussions on vaccination planning and process, according to a joint statement from the European Commission and Portugal, which currently holds the EU’s rotating presidency. Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides had called on the bloc’s governments to forge a coordinated approach, saying it “will be key for us to speak with one voice.” The bloc needs “an approach which does not confuse citizens and that does not fuel vaccine hesitancy,” she said. But in the statement on the meeting, the EU said the ministers shared “their different interpretations” of a safety report by the bloc’s drugs regulator, indicating what may be deep divisions on the way forward. --- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/2TwO8Gm Bloomberg Quicktake brings you live global news and original shows spanning business, technology, politics and culture.
