Romanians and Bulgarians have overwhelmingly rejected Big Pharma's experimental shots and now their governments are selling them off to Ireland and Denmark.
Europe's least-vaccinated countries are in no short supply of Covid-19 jabs – and yet Romania and Bulgaria are both looking for opportunities to sell their excess vaccines which they are not able to administer to their own population.
This is happening at a time when the rest of Europe fears both higher vaccines prices and the surge of the more-contagious Delta variant of the virus.
To avoid unused stocks of vaccines from hitting expiration date, Romania recently secured a deal with Ireland.
The Irish prime minister posted on his Twitter account a message announcing an agreement with Romania for the purchase of 700,000 additional doses of Covid-19 vaccines.
The vaccines are to be delivered to Ireland over the course of August and will be provided directly from Pfizer, in the form of a redistribution of doses originally ordered by Romania.
