Gallina is the chair of the steering committee set up by the EU Commission to buy vaccines. At the hearing in front of the EU Parliament it was not yet about the controversial exchange (“bazaar”) of vaccine doses among the EU states, about which some heads of government, according to Sebastian Kurz, knew nothing. Rather, it was already apparent at that time that the EU was still much more seriously behind in terms of delivery quantities and vaccination plans.
