The Italian government intends to take legal action against Pfizer Inc. as a response to delays in vaccine distribution in the country, Rai News reported on Wednesday citing people close to the matter.

The Italian authorities have contacted the state's attorney general in order to consider all the legal options and decide on the best course of action to protect its rights as a party in the legal agreement, the report added.

Earlier this week, the pharmaceutical company announced that it will fail to deliver the doses agreed upon with the countries across Europe due to work needed on its Belgium factory.
