E.U. Secures 300 Million Additional Doses of Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine

Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, announced on Friday that it has secured additional doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, enough vaccines to inoculate 80 percent of the bloc’s population.

As you know, we have, right now, access to 300 million doses of the BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine. Now, the good news is we now have agreed with BioNTech-Pfizer to extend this contract. With the new agreement, we could purchase a total of up to an additional 300 million doses of the BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine. In other words, this will allow us to double the amount of doses of BioNTech-Pfizer. And I’m particularly pleased that 75 million of this order will already be available as of quarter two, onwards. The rest would then be delivered in the third and in the fourth quarter.
