EU in talks to secure 3 more COVID vaccine deals - Von der Leyen

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced on Thursday that the European Union is negotiating coronavirus vaccine deals with four more pharmaceutical companies.

With three vaccine procurement agreements that Brussels has already made with AstraZeneca plc, Johnson & Johnson and Sanofi SA, the bloc is also in talks to secure doses of COVID jabs developed by Moderna Inc, CureVac, and the one made by joint efforts of Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE, Von der Leyen asserted.

She has previously stressed that the coronavirus pandemic could "overwhelm" EU, urging the bloc's members to put in added efforts to combat the spread of the virus.
