EU and UK pledge to work together to expand vaccine supplies for all citizens – BBC News

After weeks of tension between the UK and the European Union over the distribution of vaccines, a joint statement has been issued pledging to work together to improve communications in relation to the pandemic. The statement says they want to “create a win-win situation” and “expand vaccine supply for all citizens”. It was a notably different tone to the one struck by the EU earlier, when the Commission proposed tougher controls on exports of vaccines, based on infection and vaccination rates in the destination countries. Boris Johnson warned that he hadn't ruled out retaliation measures if the EU went ahead with plans to block the export of vaccines to the UK.
