The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is manufactured in the Netherlands. That'd be my first guess.

The Oxford vaccine is manufactured in the UK.

The Amsterdam-Heathrow freight rotations were related to keeping supply lines open when other countries closed borders with the UK. TUI operated several AMS-LHR rotations with 787s before Christmas.

(Reuters) - AstraZeneca has signed an agreement with Halix B.V. for manufacturing the COVID-19 vaccine being developed by the British drugmaker and the University of Oxford, the Netherlands-based biopharmaceutical firm said on Tuesday.

As part of the agreement, Halix will manufacture the vaccine, called AZD1222, at a facility in the Netherlands. It did not provide any further details related to the contract.

I think the AstraZeneca vaccines to be used in UK will be produced in UK (see https://www.business-live.co.uk/manufac ... s-19539566 )

The Dutch facility is probably going to supply EU. The vaccine will be manufactured in many other global locations too besides these two. India likely will be another country.
