    Not sure exactly what they are asking the UK Gov to do here.

    Any agreement/technology transfer to ‘fill and finish’ vaccine in Argentina, would be a commercial matter for the Argy Gov (would almost certainly have to put up money) an Argy manufacturer and AZ.

    Just start a rumour that the AZ jab has the side effect of rendering MalviNazis sterile, which should reduce the demand for it in Argentina.
