Priority question for written answer  P-000257/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Beata Mazurek (ECR)
 Subject: EU vaccination strategy

The Covid-19 pandemic is a historic challenge for all of Europe and the entire world. In these difficult times, now more than ever we need unity in action and decision-making to deal effectively with this disease. To that end, all Member States agreed to a joint EU vaccination strategy giving the Commission a mandate to negotiate and purchase Covid-19 vaccines on behalf of all of them. It is surprising, therefore, that Germany has breached these arrangements and purchased vaccines on its own, thereby seriously undermining the principle of EU solidarity. In view of this inappropriate course of action by Germany in breach of the agreement, could the Commission answer the following questions:

1. Was the Commission aware of, and did it agree to, the conclusion of a separate agreement by Germany to buy Covid-19 vaccines?

2. What legal action does the Commission intend to take against Germany in relation to this clear breach of the agreement authorising the Commission to negotiate and purchase Covid-19 vaccines on behalf of the Member States?

3. Will such double standards and the favouring of certain Member States not jeopardise the unity of the European Union? Is this not setting a dangerous precedent as regards the activities of the European institutions?
