AstraZeneca vaccines meant for and paid for by the EU could have ended up in Britain, diplomatic sources in Brussels claimed today. The suspicion is that the British-Swedish pharmaceutical company supplied the UK from the EU vaccine stock because Britain paid a higher price for the dose and approved it sooner. On Monday, Brussels threatened to block EU vaccine exports to non-EU countries, after AstraZeneca revealed that it would not be able to fulfil its contractual obligations as originally hoped. Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, said on Tuesday that the EU would press on with the export mechanism that would force companies to ask for permission before vaccines could leave the bloc. In a speech to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Mrs von der Leyen said, “Europe invested billions to help develop the world's first Covid-19 vaccines to create a truly global common good. Europe is determined to contribute to this global common good but it also means business.” She added: “And now, the companies must deliver. They must honour their obligations and this is why we will set up a vaccine export to transparency mechanism.” A European Commission spokesman said: "How worried are we about the state of vaccinations? Well, we are worried that is for sure. We are dealing with a very important pandemic and vaccination is very important." The UK is dependent on the Pfizer vaccine, which is produced in Belgium, and is expecting almost 3.5million doses to be delivered in the next three weeks. That supply could be jeopardised if the EU decided to block the exports after the AstraZeneca controversy.

Nicola Sturgeon's target to vaccinate all over-70s by the middle of next month is a "big ask" unless mass vaccination centres open and run at "full steam", GPs have warned. Dr Andrew Buist, chairman of the British Medical Association's GP committee, said vaccine supply to doctors' surgeries had started to improve but it was still only coming through "in small amounts" of around 100 doses a time. He expressed confidence that a target to vaccinate all the over-80s by Feb 5 would be met, but warned that the next major milestone of completing all over-70s by mid-February could be missed. With only 10 days between the two deadlines, and 580,000 people to be vaccinated, he said GPs could not complete the group on their own and would need mass vaccination centres "up and running" at full capacity. His warning came as government sources disclosed 984,000 doses have now been handed over to SNP ministers from the UK supplies, with only 437,000 having been administered and more than half a million unused.

Holidays abroad could be off until 2022 if the Government brings in quarantine hotels for all passengers to prevent new Covid variants reaching the UK, industry chiefs and MPs have warned. The Cabinet coronavirus operations committee will meet on Tuesday to finalise Australia and New Zealand-style hotel quarantine that will cost travellers up to £1,500 for 10 days self-isolating, with meals served in their rooms and supervised by private security guards. Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, is resisting proposals by Cabinet "hawks", thought to include Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, and Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, for all arrivals to be subject to hotel quarantine. Mr Shapps wants to limit the measure to passengers from only "high risk" countries in which variants of Covid have emerged.

Yesterday Brussels threatened to block EU vaccine exports to non-EU countries, after AstraZeneca revealed that it would not be able to fulfil its contractual obligations as originally hoped. French MEP Veronique Trillet-Lenoir suggested AstraZeneca was giving EU supplies to other countries such as the UK and US who had agreed a higher price. Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, today confirmed that the EU would press on with the export mechanism that would force companies to ask for permission before vaccines could leave the bloc. Despite the row, Mr Johnson said he has "total confidence" in the UK's supply of vaccines. Speaking from Downing Street, the Prime Minister added: "Obviously we expect and hope that our EU friends will honour all contracts...and we continue to work with friends and partners in the EU, and indeed around the world. He added: "The creation of these vaccines has been a wonderful example of multilateral cooperation and one of the lessons we have to learn is the need to cooperate... I don't want to see restrictions on the vaccines or their ingredients across borders." Follow the latest updates below.
