Vaccines for Monkeypox are being supplied by Bavarian Nordic
According to a joint statement by the European Commission and Bavarian Nordic, the EU signed a contract on Tuesday for the supply of 110,000 doses of monkeypox vaccines.
Commissioner Stella Kyriakides said EU funds will be used to purchase vaccines for EU states. Among the states with the greatest need, the doses should be delivered proportionately to their population.
Deliveries will start immediately and will be completed in the coming months, the company said. It raised its outlook for this year’s financial results after the deal with the EU and other smaller deals for the supply of its vaccine.
In 19 EU countries, including Norway and Iceland, monkeypox has been reported in about 900 cases, the Commission said. Norway and Iceland will also be able to receive doses despite not being EU members.
