Astrazeneca said on Wednesday that a meeting between the British drugmaker and European Union representatives to discuss Covid-19 vaccine supplies would go ahead as planned on Wednesday.

"We are meeting with the EU later today," a company spokesman said in a written statement.

Austria's Health Minister Rudolf Anschober earlier told reporters that the company had postponed negotiations over a shortfall in vaccine deliveries until Thursday.
