The Mainz vaccine manufacturer Biontech announced in November that it was working on the development of an adapted vaccine. The EU states want 180 million cans of it to be delivered. An existing contract stipulates that the companies – if desired – adapt the vaccines to new variants within 100 days, EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen said last week.

General practitioner association boss Ulrich Weigeldt recently said that it was expected that a fourth vaccination would be necessary in summer, or at the latest in autumn ./jr/DP/nas
