Regardless of the current futility and controversy over side effects, the Biden administration said it has signed a new agreement with Pfizer and partner BioNTech for 105 million doses of their COVID-19 vaccine for an autumn vaccination campaign, for a worth $ 3.2 billion. The price per dose, from these calculations, appears to be over $ 30 !
The contract includes doses for adults and children, as well as supplies of a vaccine adapted to Omicron, currently pending approval by federal health authorities, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said in a statement. So you are paying for a product that may also have the effectiveness of fresh water.
"We look forward to receiving these new specific vaccines and working with state and local health departments, pharmacies, health care providers, qualified federal health centers and other partners to make them available in communities across the country this fall." Assistant Secretary of Preparation and Response at HHS Dawn O'Connell said.
Pharmaceutical companies have developed vaccines for the Omicron variant, which according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the dominant strain in the United States.
This deal will provide additional doses for US residents and help cope with the next wave of COVID-19 ″. Pending regulatory clearance, it will also include an Omicron-adapted vaccine, which we believe is important in addressing the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, ”BioNTech Chief Business and Chief Commercial Officer Sean Marett said in a statement .
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to make a decision in the coming days, following a meeting held on Tuesday where outside consultants recommended modifying vaccines to better target the Micron. Under the new contract with Pfizer, the US government has the option to purchase an additional 195 million doses, bringing the total to 300 million, the HHS said.
"In the past 18 months, we have purchased and shipped more than 750 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine nationwide, helping to ensure that two-thirds of American adults are fully vaccinated," O'Connell said.
In Europe, Pfizer's CEO is expected to send new SMS or secret Whatsapp messages to Von Der Leyen before making decisions. All behind, and on the pockets, of the citizens of the Union who, as often happens, are treated with unnecessary trappings.
