People who have been relying on AstraZeneca for extreme ongoing health issues over the last few years suddenly had their supply cut about 7 weeks ago, causing pain and suffering in many cases. For some they had to qualify over a six month period to get on it on the first place, but it suddenly just stopped. We are talking about weekly injections to maintain quality of life here, but it seems all eyes were on covid and so existing health issues were just forgotten!
