In the race for the vaccine. Four European Union (EU) countries, including Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands, have signed a contract to deliver 300 million doses of vaccine against the EU SARS-CoV-2that is developing AstraZeneca.

This contract provides for the proportional distribution of the drug among the population when it is approved. According to the Federal Ministry of Health, the order production capacity must be guaranteed so that vaccines can be available quickly and in large quantities after approval.

The panel also said that the drug could at best be available by the end of this year and that all EU countries could join the treaty.

According to German Health Minister Jens Spahn, many countries in the world already have a guaranteed vaccine, but Europe does not. He therefore hopes that this measure will add value to EU citizens in the current emergency.

Robert Speranza, Italian Minister of Health, in turn raises the agreed doses for EU citizens to 400 million. This vaccine is being developed by pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca in collaboration with Oxford University and is one of the few in clinical trials.

This four-nation project is known as the “Vaccine Alliance” and maintains contact with other companies that are researching to obtain vaccines against COVID-19.
