EU yeses deal for 900M Pfizer jab doses purchase

The European Commission has approved a contract with Pfizer Inc. and BionTech SE for guaranteed 900 million doses of their vaccine against COVID-19 for the period 2021–23, its President Ursula von der Leyen confirmed on Saturday.

"Other contracts and other vaccine technologies will follow," she added.

Von der Leyen recently confirmed the European Union will receive 50 million doses of Pfizer and BioNTech's jab in the second rather than in the fourth quarter of the year and order another 100 million shots.
