The AZ vaccine will not only be sold at cost to developing countries for the small amount of £3.60, but also to the EU and around the world.  The Pfizer jab costs £15 per jab and Moderna £28.   AZ decided to forgo a £21 billion profit, unlike Pfizer, Moderna etc who will make a huge profit.

yes, that's the theory, but already happened that AZ was telling they don't have enough vaccines to send to the UE, and they were sending a lot to countries outside the UE because they get paid more... many shipments of AZ vaccines outside the UE had been blocked because apparently they can't supply the UE, but they have no problems sending them to countries that pay more.

AZ is very suspicious of strange manouvres, so it's like they want to pretend they are not making that huge profit, but at the back they try to.

At least, that's what the media says, which we know might be not entirely true, but however, you only listen of that kind of manouvres from AZ.

Which media are you reading from?

For example:

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/profit-before-people-astrazeneca-charging-sa-more-than-double-what-eu-pays-for-covid-19-vaccine/

I think you will agree these are very cheap even at twice the price compared to other vaccines.

AZ are not making any profit at all, in fact their share price has plummeted because of the present row.

Spanish radio and tv, logically.

Most specifically, A Punt tv, which is the regional tv from where I live, Valencia, because they just give information about facts. The national tv news programs are all influenced by political ideologies and their information is very affected by opinions more than facts, so I avoid them, same with newspapers.
