Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Last year Spahn was setting up a vaccine alliance with some other countries until he was told to call it off by Merkel. Instead, he was told to submit to the EC. The transaction went ahead in a somewhat Pollyannish way, buying vaccines like a regular customer instead of like an investor. Securing not just supplies but production capacity should have been the order of the day. The member states were too naive and too stingy. If this newfound vaccine nationalism (not too much) leads to more robust capacity then that can only be a good thing.

Schengen is toast!
