Australia urged to extend AstraZeneca vaccine production to support Pacific nations

Advocates for aid in the Pacific are warning the federal government it’s risking the lives of people in the region, by ending the domestic manufacture of Astra Zeneca vaccination doses.

Biotechnology company CSL has confirmed it will fulfil the existing contract to make 50 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine in Australia, and remaining production will be completed by early next year.

But Reverend Tim Costello, spokesman for the group End Covid For All, is calling on the Prime Minister to extend the agreement.
