The US manufacturer Moderna wants to start delivering its corona vaccine to the European Union as early as December - provided the agent receives approval.
The company announced this on Wednesday. It confirmed the conclusion of a framework agreement with the EU Commission. Accordingly, 80 million vaccine doses are to be delivered initially, with the option of 80 million more units.
“Moderna is assuming that it will start supplying mRNA-1273 to the European Union in December 2020,” confirmed the company at the request of the German Press Agency. Strategic partners in Europe are Lonza in Switzerland and Rovi in Spain for the production and filling of the vaccine.
EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen announced the contract for up to 160 million vaccine doses on Tuesday. The Moderna vaccine is one of the three vaccines with the best chances of being approved in Europe within the next few weeks. Before this, the effectiveness and safety are checked by the Medicines Agency EMA. According to the manufacturer, the Moderna vaccine has an effectiveness of 94.5 percent.
