BRUSSELS, May 21 (Reuters) - Pfizer and BionTech will deliver through the international vaccine-sharing facility COVAX some of the 2 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses it announced on Friday as new supplies for low- and middle-income countries.

The doses will be allocated “through bilateral agreements, agreements with supranational organizations as well as our partnership with COVAX,” a Pfizer spokesman said.

Earlier on Friday a BioNTech spokeswoman said: “we are currently still evaluating this.” (Reporting by Ludwig Burger, editing by Thomas Escritt and Angus MacSwan)
