GERMANY and France's vaccination programme has been thrown into chaos as thousands refuse to have the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab after leaders questioned its effectiveness.
Scaremongering by European politicians, including French President Emmanuel Macron, has led to a low uptake in the countries as they lag behind the UK.
France’s Europe minister Clément Beaune on Monday was forced to deny the EU’s handling of the vaccine crisis was “the best advertisement for Brexit”, instead claiming Britain was taking dangerous risks his country would not take due to its "difficult sanitary situation".
Reiterating doubts voiced in Germany and by French president Emmanuel Macron over the efficacy of the AstraZeneca vaccine, Mr Beaune said the UK had left itself heavily exposed with reliance on one vaccine - suggesting the strategy could backfire.
