EU secures 300M additional doses of Pfizer vaccine

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced on Friday that the European Union secured an additional 300 million doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine.

"We make sure Europeans have sufficient doses of safe and effective COVID19 vaccines," Von der Leyen stated. "We now enable EU countries to buy more doses of the first vaccine approved in EU. They can now buy up to 300 million more doses of the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine," she added.

The EU launched vaccinations with the Pfizer/BioNTech jab in late December. The bloc initially ordered 200 million doses and then decided to take an additional 100 million in December.
