Johnson & Johnson today began delivering its single-dose vaccine against Covid-19 to EU countries, European Union and company officials said.

The company had originally planned to start deliveries in early April, but delayed them due to vaccine production issues.

"The first tranches are leaving the warehouses for the Member States today," a European Commission spokesman told a news conference.

"Johnson & Johnson is starting to send the vaccine to the EU today. Very good news," said Peter Liese, MEP of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The US company has pledged to deliver 55 million doses to the EU by the end of June and another 120 million in the third quarter, EU Industry Commissioner Thierry Breton said this month.

"Until recently, it was not clear whether this promise would be kept. However, 50 million doses are certain "for the second quarter, said Lize, noting that he received this information from the company and the European Commission, which coordinates talks with vaccine manufacturers.

A Johnson & Johnson spokesman confirmed that the company had begun deliveries today to EU countries, Norway and Iceland, but declined to comment on supplies for April and the second quarter.

The company announced plans to deliver 2021 million doses of vaccine in 200 to the EU, Norway and Iceland.
