(Newser) – Pfizer and BioNTech will supply the US with an additional 100 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine under a new agreement, reports the AP. The drugmakers said Wednesday that they expect to deliver all the doses by July 31. Pfizer already has a contract to supply the government with 100 million doses of its vaccine.

It has now been joined by a vaccine from Moderna, which was developed in closer cooperation with scientists from the National Institutes of Health. (Read more coronavirus stories.)
