Germany and the EU are lagging far behind the US and UK in the race to provide coronavirus vaccines, according to media reports. According to Welt am Sonntag, the United States has already received 800 million doses of vaccine from six different manufacturers under preliminary contracts. In addition, they will have the opportunity to receive an additional 1.4 billion doses of the vaccine later.

The UK has already signed contracts with six manufacturers for 340 million doses of the vaccine, according to the report. The country has a per capita quota higher than any other industrialized country.

On the contrary, the EU Commission has so far only signed a framework agreement with the British-Swedish group Astra Zeneca, covering 300 million doses of vaccine for 446 million inhabitants in 27 member countries, with the possibility of receiving an additional 100 million. Upon request, the EU Commission informed WamS that it is working “across the board to achieve the same with other companies with which we have already completed preliminary negotiations.”
