The new price for one dose of Pfizer is reported to be 19.50 euros. Previously, the cost of the vaccine was 15.5 euros. At the same time, the price for the Moderna vaccine reaches 21.48 euros, while in the first deal it was about 19 euros.
The agency writes that the increase in prices is due to disruptions in the supply of vaccines from other manufacturers to the EU and reports of side effects from them.
It is noted that the terms of the agreements concluded this year provide for up to 2.1 billion vaccinations.
The contracts were revised after clinical trial data showed that the two companies' vaccines were more effective than their competitors.
Earlier, it was reported that 80,000 doses of Pfizer Covid vaccine would be destroyed in Israel. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines were said to be worth $1.8 million.
