Astra Zeneca from Tod

From Graeme TK

Friday, 10 September 2021

People on here may have read the news reports about 3 batches of the Oxford Zeneca vaccine that haven't been recognised by the EU. The story, with the batch numbers, is here.

I was vaccinated in Todmorden and my first shot came from one of these batches (the number is on the card they gave me after receiving the jab). I guess this will also be true for others on here.

My understanding is that the batch number is somehow reflected in the QR code that people now have to use to access services and businesses when they visit countries in the EU with a 'vaccine pass' system. In other words, as things stand, you wouldn't be able to visit a cafe in Paris if you were vaccinated in Todmorden back in March.

I've written to Craig Whittaker MP to see what's being done at governmental level to address this anomaly, which seems to be the result of a bureaucratic glitch.
