(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 30 – Italy will continue to leave the
acquisition of COVID-19 vaccines to the European Union, which
has exclusive agreements with the pharmaceutical companies,
Civil Protection Chief Fabrizio Curcio told a Lower House
session on Tuesday.
    Curcio said that the government’s vaccines acquisitions strategy “has not changed”.
    “The health ministry considered it opportune to have talks with
the other European partners in order to proceed in a joint
manner with the negotiations with the pharmaceutical companies
to obtain medicines for the whole EU,” Curcio said.
    “The acquisition is made via the Commission and, on this basis,
an agreement was signed for exclusive acquisitions by the
Commission”.
    When asked recently about problems with the vaccination rollout
in Europe, Premier Mario Draghi said his government would be
pragmatic and go along with a EU approach as long as it
delivered results, while being prepared to find other solutions
independently if this were not the case. (ANSA).
