Pfizer will provide the US with 100 million additional doses of its Covid-19 vaccine by July next year, the US drug maker announced on Wednesday.
Wednesday’s agreement brings the total number of cans to be shipped to the US to 200 million.
Under the terms of the agreement, Pfizer and German partner BioNTech will deliver at least 70 million cans by June 30th, with the remainder of the 100 million cans due by July 31st.
The U.S. government has already signed a contract with Pfizer for 100 million doses of the vaccine, which will be rolled out nationwide after the shot received emergency approval earlier this month.
