The US administration has purchased another 200 million doses of coronavirus vaccine from an American company and its German partner Biotech. This was confirmed on Friday at a regular briefing for journalists by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
вЂњYes, we made this purchase,вЂќ the official representative of the US president said.
According to her, the US authorities вЂњhave always been preparing for any scenarioвЂќ in this area.
вЂњThe Federal Government has taken advantage of the provisions of its contract with Pfizer that make it possible to purchase these 200 million doses of Pfizer vaccine to be delivered between the fall of 2021 and the spring of 2022 in order to prepare for future vaccination needs, including<...> provision of vaccines for children under the age of 12 and possible booster [additional] vaccinations if studies show that such are necessary, вЂњ Psaki noted.
