Germany demands that J&J make up COVID-19 vaccine gap in July

FRANKFURT, June 13 (Reuters) - Germany’s health ministry on Sunday said Johnson & Johnson must deliver 6.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to Germany in July to make up for a shortfall expected in June after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) told the company to dispose of millions of doses because contamination concerns.

“This is regrettable because each dose counts,” said a ministry spokesman in response to an enquiry by Reuters. “We therefore expect from J&J that this amount is delivered in July as quickly as possible.”
