After great unrest in several European countries, Pfizer and BioNTech now say that vaccine deliveries will only be delayed by one week. 

On Saturday, the American vaccine manufacturer Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech announced that deliveries would be back to the normal level from the week starting on Monday, January 25. From February 15, deliveries will be increased.

The two companies justified the delay by saying that they want to step up production capacity in Europe. 

In a joint statement on Saturday, they wrote that they had developed a plan that will lead to increased production capacity and deliveries of significantly more vaccine doses in the second quarter.

“Temporary reduction”

“As a result, our facility in Purs in Belgium will experience a temporary reduction in deliveries of the number of doses in the coming week,” the companies wrote.

On Friday, Pfizer announced that deliveries would be delayed for the next three to four weeks due to an upgrade at the company’s production facility in Belgium.
