The European Commission etched a deal on Wednesday with both Pfizer and BioNTech for the additional 4 Million COVID-19 Vaccine shots to be delivered this month. Almost around 2 Million people will be vaccinated with the supplied vaccine shots in Europe with planned deliveries to ease border movement and tackle virus hotspots.
“To tackle aggressive variants of the virus and to improve the situation in hotspots, quick and decisive action is necessary,” the president of the Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said.
Both Pfizer and AstraZeneca struggled to catch up on their agreed output which led to the shortfall of deliveries. Since then this short-term burst in shipments is good news for the people of Europe. As per the sources Reuters claimed that Pfizer and BioNTech both had ramped up deliveries to deliver 5 Million doses per week.
