The European Commission has launched legal action against AstraZeneca.

It's accused the company of failing to meet the terms of its contract with regard to vaccine deliveries.

Only 30-million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine were delivered to the bloc between January and March.

AstraZeneca says it "regrets" this decision but will "deliver almost 50-million" doses by May which it says is "in line" with its forecast.

Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakedes says the priority is to ensure vaccine deliveries take place to protect the health of Europeans.

Here, around 295,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine have been administered so far.
