  • The European Commission has struck a deal with drug makers Pfizer and Biontech for four million extra vaccine doses to be delivered this month.

  • The shots for two million people in addition to plan deliveries aimed to ease border movement and tackle virus hotspots and aggressive new variants, it said on Wednesday.

  • It's a rare piece of good news following a shortfall from Pfizer and AstraZeneca has struggled to meet agreed supply.

  • The extra doses will be used, particularly in border regions, to restore free movement of goods and people, the commission said.

  • Pfizer and German partner Biontech's vaccine, which one EU approval in December, has proven highly effective against all known variants of the coronavirus, the commission added.

  • It said this month's boost in supply is down to the successful expansion of manufacturing capacity in Europe.
