Australia will stop manufacturing AstraZeneca PLC and Oxford University's vaccine against COVID-19 amid the growing demand for treatments produced by Moderna Inc., and Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE in the country, 9News reported on Wednesday.

According to sources familiar with the matter, the production is likely to end in December after the company in charge of the feat, CSL Limited, finishes the batch it is currently working on.

The report comes amid the increasing worries concerning AstraZeneca's vaccine as several people in Australia died after receiving the treatment.
