FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Mord’s government will charge the government between થી 25 and ડ 37 per dose of the Covid-19 vaccine candidate, Chief Executive Stephen Bensel told the German weekly Welt am Sonntag (WMS), depending on the amount ordered.

“Our vaccine is about the same as a flu shot, which is between $ 10 and $ 50,” he was quoted as saying.

On Monday, an EU official involved in the talks said the European Commission intended to strike a deal with Moderna to supply millions of doses of its vaccine candidate at a price below $ 25 per dose.

“Nothing has been signed yet, but we are close to a deal with the EU Commission. We want to reach Europe and we are in constructive negotiations, “Bansley told Wams.

Moderna says its experimental vaccine, effective in preventing Covid-19, has become the second developer to report more results than expected after Pfizer and its partner Bioentech, based on interim data from a late-stage clinical trial.

The EU has been in talks with Moderna for its experimental COVID-19 vaccine since at least July.
