Brussels is trying to fill in the gaps. After being annoyed by delays in delivery of doses of vaccines against Covid-19, the European Commission on Tuesday concluded an agreement with Pfizer and BioNTech to accelerate the delivery of 10 million doses in the second quarter, announced the executive European cited by Reuters.
These 10 million doses of vaccine, taken from the 100 million optional doses planned for the second half of 2021, will finally be delivered in the second quarter.
These doses will be taken from the 100 million optional doses planned for the third and fourth quarters under the second contract between the EU and Pfizer / BioNTech.
With these additional doses, the EU is expected to receive more than 200 million doses of this vaccine in the second quarter.
