USA orders 500 million Biontech vaccination doses: price rises
The US has 500 million corona vaccine doses of Biontech/Pfizer ordered to pass them on to poorer countries. 200 million cans would be delivered from August, the remaining 300 million in the first half of 2022, the companies said. The US government will donate the vaccine to poorer countries worldwide through Covax. Reuters had already learned of the action from an insider on Wednesday. US President Joe Biden is expected to report on the plans later this day.
The EU announced in May that it would donate 100 million cans to other countries this year. Biontech shares are knocking again at the 200 euro mark, quoting almost three percent more firmly at 198.15 euros.
