According to the newspaper, with the latest agreement, Norway can receive up to 7.2 million doses of the vaccine.
On Friday, it was announced that the EU is extending its agreement to purchase the vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech to can purchase up to 300 million extra doses of the vaccine.
A total of 75 million of the new doses will be delivered in the second quarter of 2021, while the rest will come later this year.
