Austria's Kurz and allies seek 'correction' on EU vaccine distribution

VIENNA, March 16 (Reuters) - Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and a handful of allies from eastern Europe are seeking a “correction mechanism” on the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines within the European Union after complaining it is uneven, Kurz said on Tuesday.

“It is important here that we ensure together with (European Commission President) Ursula von der Leyen and (European Council President) Charles Michel that there is a correction mechanism,” Kurz told a news conference with his counterparts from Bulgaria, Slovenia and the Czech Republic.
