BRUSSELS – The people on television were happy: Cheering Britons received the world’s first recordings of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine at the beginning of December. Less pleased were many people who watched in Germany where the vaccine was made and where the government served the people said it would be weeks before they could start their own vaccination program. “Millions are getting German vaccine, but we have to keep waiting,” was the headline in Berlin tabloid BZ “The world is vaccinating – not Germany,” says the news magazine Focus. Sign up for the New York Times morning newsletter It was especially annoying for Germans and other Europeans to see the United States and Britain, less disciplined in their lockdowns and pandemic precautions, come out on top in the vaccine race in fact, former President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Boris Johnson came out ahead all the more incentives to get involved with vaccines as their countries became the worst hit in the world There is no doubt that the European Union botched many of the first steps to getting vaccines it was slower from the mark, focused too very on the prices, while the US. and Britain didn’t make the dollar and pound an object, and succumbed to an abundance of regulatory caution. All of these things flattened the block as drug makers fell back on their promised orders.But the 27 countries of the European Union are also trying something they have never done before Tried, and broke, yet another barrier in their deeper integration – albeit shaky – by choosing to pool their lot in the vaccine hunt, inverting the usual power equation of the bloc’s larger, richer countries like Germany and France that did it could have afforded to sign contracts directly with drug manufacturers, as the United States and Britain did, saw their vaccination campaigns delayed by the more cumbersome joint effort, while smaller countries had better terms of delivery than they probably would have negotiated themselves for most of the E. U states, this experiment was beneficial but it was not necessarily welcomed happily in the disadvantaged richest countries, and it left leaders like Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and President Emmanuel Macron of France open to criticism at home for you and the heads of state and government of the EU have nonetheless stood by their decision and the impulse to show solidarity, even if the finger has started “What would people have said if Germany and France had been in competition with each other to buy or manufacture vaccines? That would have been a mess, “said Macron on Friday after a virtual meeting with Merkel at a press conference.” That would have been counterproductive economically and from a public health perspective, because we will only get out of this pandemic when we have vaccinated enough people in Europe “But even as the leaders of the traditional European power duo admitted the 23 billion cans ordered as an indication of the wisdom of a common approach that a full campaign could not be expected before March, causing the bloc into controversy and accusations and perhaps With just over 3% of EU citizens having received at least one dose of vaccine by the end of last week, as opposed to the 17% in the UK and 9% in the US, nowhere is the delay as great as in Germany bloc largest economy and de facto leader “I must have called the hotline 100 times,” say te Klaus Kater, 80, a retired lawyer in Germany who redialed for two days before he could reach the health authorities in his home state in Lower Saxony. His efforts put him on a waiting list, he said, “They asked me how I should be notified when it was my turn and I said to send myself a letter just to make sure he had no idea when that might be. However, not all of these issues – like under-equipped phone lines – are the fault of the European Union As frustrations mount, the bloc has become a simple whipping boy for all kinds of vaccination problems that it shouldn’t have been solving at all, experts say Germany could possibly have got vaccines for its population faster if it had acted itself, but ultimately it would be Disaster has been the joint EU effort in many other ways “It would have been a catastrophe for Germany to abandon joint procurement politically but also economically if Germany alone had secured the vaccine and the rest had not,” said Guntram Wolff, director of the Brussels-based research institute Bruegel Wolff added that In view of the fact that Germany is at the center of the open European labor market and the borders are common with nine other countries, it is not only a question of politics but also of self-interest to ensure that the entire block receives vaccines. “Most of the EU Countries would have found it very difficult to negotiate the contracts and secure the supply themselves, “said Wolff.” And I think the pharmaceutical companies themselves have also preferred the centralized approach. Nevertheless, Merkel struggled to defend the decision of her government, Germany on the possibility to refrain from buying their own vaccine erben As early as March 2020, when Italians died on stretchers in front of overwhelmed hospitals, the German and French governments blocked the export of essential protective equipment such as masks.It was a catastrophic moment for Europe One of its leaders quickly decided it couldn’t be repeated as the pandemic hit the bloc’s economies and closed its societies After four years of painful negotiations, the UK finally left the Union. Public health is usually regulated by individual Member States However, it was decided that powers would be given to the European Commission, the clumsy, clumsy administrative branch of the bloc in Brussels, to lead the vaccine safeguard negotiations, at which point it was June, and Europe was four months behind the US and three Months behind Britain in turning to pharmaceutical companies more recently, the vaccination race through the prism of Brexit has been seen right or wrong, in particular the Johnson administration has cited its lead in vaccine distribution as evidence that the formal exit from the Block was the right thing to do at the start of the New Year, at least it put the UK and the European Union into competition and heightened grudges when Anglo-Swedish company AstraZeneca told Brussels in January that it was making its planned deliveries of vaccines to the Block due to manufacturing difficulties reduce and Großbri tannien would supply its full order EU officials accused the company of prioritizing its home country, while AstraZeneca said the UK’s three-month lead in orders had given the company time to fix production disruptions similar to EU supply in an attempt to appease critics Merkel explained to the public the difficulties in manufacturing vaccines, citing more manufacturing facilities in the US and UK as reasons why these countries had started their campaigns earlier. “I think, by and large, nothing went wrong,” Merkel said on Tuesday opposite the public broadcaster ARD “Of course the question arises: Why is the United States faster, why is Israel faster, why is the United Kingdom faster? That ranks, of course, ”she added without responding. Other European leaders have tried to overcome the turmoil of recent weeks over derailed vaccine deliveries since the bloc’s confrontation with AstraZeneca in which it took protectionist measures to order squeezing the company, and the already fragile relationship with Great Britain almost imploding, a more forward-looking sense of self-reflection and action has prevailed in Brussels.European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, who has been heavily criticized personally for handling the vaccine procurement process, Admitted that Europe had discounted the difficulty of vaccine production. “Starting vaccination does not mean a seamless flow of vaccine doses from industry,” von der Leyen told European news organizations this month. “This is a bitter learning part that we Von der Leyen also hired Moncef Slaoui, a Belgian-American senior pharma manager who worked on the US Operation Warp Speed ​​as a consultant and European executives have tried to gently move them to a more proactive approach with the new vaccines showing promising signs that vaccine manufacture is complicated, as the left-wing German Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote and added in an editorial that the real failure of the government was not to communicate this effectively to the public “Germany shares the fate of the slow vaccination rate with the rest of the world with few exceptions,” wrote the newspaper in an editorial on Tuesday “Despite all impatience and exhaustion Science and Technology also have limitsDespite political deliberations pointing to a moment when the European Commission “made mistakes, learned lessons”, the hardest part will be to correct the course of the bloc and bring vaccination up to date , the settings within the insti to change the activities that drive the process “That’s what I want to say when we try to constantly compare ourselves to the U.”We shouldn’t have a complex,” said Sandra Gallina, the commission’s chief vaccines officer and head of health, in a parliamentary hearing last week. “I’m not jealous of what Biden is doing because, in fact, the situation here in Europe is allowed I say better, “she said.
