The European Union (EU) and vaccine manufacturer AstraZeneca agreed to work together on resolving the dispute over vaccine deliveries to the EU’s 27 member states.

On Wednesday night, the vaccine manufacturer and the EU Commission met for a new crisis meeting, and on Thursday morning, the BBC reported that both sides described the talks as constructive.

AstraZeneca has previously said that the company could only deliver part of the vaccine doses promised for the January to March period, pointing to production problems at the factories in Europe.

Last week, it was announced that the EU could receive 60% fewer doses in the first quarter than promised. That corresponds to about 50 million doses.

AstraZeneca has factories in both the UK and the EU, and EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides believes the company must meet its delivery obligation.
