Australian PM Morrison wants to talk with the EU about getting more vaccine doses

As background to this, the EU have held back on vaccine exports to Australia. 

Reuters reporting comments from Australian Prime Minister Morrison today:

  •  says not criticising EU for vaccine delay
  • says any suggestion any
    criticism was made against European Union would be completely
    incorrect
  • says European Union has
    denied export of 250,000 vaccine doses to Australia
  • says have been seeking
    further calls with the president of the EC to discuss vaccine
    matters
  • says to seek export licences
    for the full amount of 3.8 million doses to be provided to
    Australia

Australia’s rollout of vaccinations is progressing very slowly indeed. There is some local manufacturing of the Astra Zeneca vaccine. If I’m not mistaken the goal is to get local prodution up to 1m doses a week.
