Pfizer will provide the European Union with up to an additional 75 million doses of its jointly developed vaccine with BioNTech in the second quarter of this year. This was announced today by BioNTech.
“We work with pharmaceutical companies to ensure vaccines are delivered to Europeans.
“We are still working on increasing deliveries from the week of February 15 to ensure deliveries of all contracted vaccine doses in the first quarter,” Sierk Poetting, Biontech’s chief financial officer, said in a statement. “In addition, in the second quarter we will be able to deliver another 75 million doses to the EU,” he adds.

Meanwhile, Professor Walter Ricciardi, consultant to the Minister of Health, in an interview with Messaggero referring to the vaccine plan, stresses that “we will have to vaccinate hundreds of thousands of people in sports halls, in general medicine practices … we will need a military-type organization that does not yet exist ‘.
