Sweden pauses vaccine payments to Pfizer


Sweden’s Health Agency has stopped COVID-19 vaccine payments to Pfizer and is looking for clarity over the number of dosages accessible in every vial of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter reported on Tuesday.

Sweden is looking for lucidity on the number of dosages it has been charged for after Pfizer charged for six portions in every vial instead of the settled upon five portions, the paper said.

Sweden presently needs the EU Commission and Pfizer to agree on the number of dosages there are in every vial, it added.

“Until then, we have told the company that we must wait with the invoices that are available until we get clarity on what applies,” Chief Epidemiologist Anders Tegnell told Dagens Nyheter.

Europe’s medicine controller gave authorization recently for an additional sixth dose to be removed from the vials, increasing the number of accessible shots when supplies are short.
