Wednesday, 18 November 2020
Belgium will subscribe to the European purchase of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, Flemish Welfare Minister Wouter Beke told the Flemish parliament on Wednesday.
The Interministerial Public Health Conference decided on Wednesday that it would purchase 5 million doses of the vaccine, which could vaccinate 2.5 million people, if the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine gets approved.
It is the third vaccine that Belgium has subscribed to through the European Commission, after AstraZenace-Oxford’s vaccine and Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.
