Coronavirus: BELGIAN EXPERTS 'SHOCKED' AS ASTRAZENCA SEEKS LIABILITY WAIVER FOR VACCINE
Notice, they're not just shocked. They're 'shocked.’
" 'There is a European directive on product liability,' Vansweevelt said. 'Any producer who places a defective product on the market is responsible for that without exceptions. You can’t escape that.'
But, Ruud Dobber, an AstraZeneca executive, told Reuters that most countries with whom it had signed procurement deals had already granted its request, but refused to name the countries in question.
Dobber said that AstraZeneca could 'simply not take the risk” of being faced with liability claims if “in four years the vaccine is showing side effects.' "
Side effects can come up FOUR YEARS LATER????
Cha-CHING. Your winnings, AstraZeneca.
AstraZeneca: Oh, thank you, thank you very much.
Here’s lookin’ at you, Kid.
