The US Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Defense have reached a $1.95 billion agreement with the Pfizer drug company to produce at least 100 million doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to HHS Secretary Alex Azar, who made the announcement Wednesday.
The doses, which could start shipping out by the end of this year, will be dispersed depending on availability, will be paid for by the Trump administration at nearly $2 billion.
With the U.S. possibly buying another 500 million doses under the agreement, Azar said that of course the doses “have to be safe and effective” and approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
