EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen believes Europe is well prepared for possible third vaccinations. “We have ordered 1.8 billion doses from BioNTech until 2023,” von der Leyen told Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND/Wednesday). “This is the largest follow-up order worldwide and is enough for possible booster vaccinations in the EU and adaptations to possible new virus variants.”

However, approval of the Russian Corona vaccine Sputnik V by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) remains uncertain, according to von der Leyen. “So far, the manufacturer has not been able to provide enough valid data to demonstrate safety,” she said. That raises questions, she added.

According to the manufacturer, the Sputnik V vaccine is now already approved in 69 countries worldwide. In the EU, Hungary and Slovakia are using it even without EMA approval. Russia was most recently hoping for approval from the European Medicines Agency by the fall. It has been reviewing the vaccine since the beginning of March.
