The European Public Prosecutor’s Office is currently investigating the legality of the original deals with the vaccine manufacturers, the questionable basis of which also includes the arbitrariness of individual EU politicians and dubious text messages from Ursula von der Leyen. Now Member States must pay €10 each for canceled doses – i.e. undelivered and uninjected “vaccines”. A total of another 70 million “vaccines” must be purchased from Pfizer, Report24 reports .

The Financial Times reports that the EU is currently negotiating a deal for 70 million “Covid-19 vaccines” until 2026 – exclusively with BioNTech/Pfizer. According to the FT, this would push competitors Moderna, Novavax and Sanofi out of the market.

Apparently the existing contracts with Pfizer need to be changed. For example, canceled doses would have to be paid at 10 euros per dose. When you think about it, you can’t help but be amazed. Where else is it that a government, which would be obliged to use resources sparingly and purposefully, wastes taxpayers’ money on products that are not needed?

Some countries, including Poland, will reject this treaty. They have no interest in their populations paying for vaccine doses they do not need. The EU is currently working to “convince” these opponents.

If the agreement is reached, the other vaccine manufacturers mentioned above will be largely sidelined. Because 70 million doses through 2026 would be the expected total market share. The fact that realistically no dose at all is necessary, as Covid-19 poses no statistically demonstrable danger outside of a flu wave, was not discussed nor brought up by FT.

The mentioned manufacturers are struggling with different problems. For example, Novavax’s share price would have fallen 97 percent compared to 2021. The vaccine doses usually had a shelf life of only three months, and the majority would have expired.

With Sanofi and Novavax, up to 90 percent of the doses supplied have remained unused and should be destroyed. Moderna, on the other hand, had already delivered all contracted doses and there would be no contract extension or renewal.

Meanwhile, the European Public Prosecutor’s Office is investigating the behavior of Ursula von der Leyen, who negotiated the original vaccine deals directly with Pfizer boss Albert Bourla via text message, off the cuff and with questionable democratic legitimacy. It is unknown whether these text messages are available to the judicial authorities at all – Brussels had refused to disclose them.
