BRUSSELS: European Union governments are intensifying pressure on Pfizer and other COVID-19 vaccine makers to renegotiate contracts, warning millions of shots that are no longer needed could go to waste, according to EU officials and a document.

During the most acute phase of the pandemic, the European Commission and EU governments agreed to buy huge volumes of vaccines, mostly from Pfizer and its partner BioNTech, amid fears of insufficient supplies.

But with the pandemic abating in Europe and amid a marked slowdown in vaccinations, many countries are now urging tweaks to contracts to reduce supplies and consequently cut their spending on vaccines.

The matter was discussed on Tuesday at a meeting of EU health ministers in Luxembourg, although the Commission remained cautious on what could be achieved.

Poland, which is the leading country in this attempt to revise contracts, has more than 30 million COVID vaccines in stock and would need to buy another 70 million under existing agreements, a Polish diplomat told Reuters, urging changes to avoid waste.

Poland has a population of about 38 million, with about 60% fully vaccinated, not including boosters - against over 70% in the EU.

In a letter sent to the Commission earlier in June, and seen by Reuters, the Polish Health Minister Adam Niedzielski together with his counterparts from Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania urged a "reduction of the amounts" of vaccines being ordered.

They said the contracts were agreed when it was impossible to predict how the pandemic would develop, and they should now be changed as the situation is improving.

During a public session of Tuesday's EU health ministers' meeting, Slovakia said it supported the letter. Other countries, including Cyprus and Malta, urged caution as pandemic conditions could change again.

'CONTRACTS MUST BE HONOURED'

Pfizer and Moderna MRNA.O, which is another top supplier of COVID vaccines to the EU, have agreed to postpone some deliveries.

However, the ministers said in their joint letter, referring only to the tweaks agreed with Pfizer, that they were "an insufficient solution and only delay the problem".

EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides told Tuesday's public session that the Commission would work to further extend deliveries beyond this year and excess doses could be needed in the future.

But she added: "Contracts must be honoured", adding the EU "cannot unilaterally change the terms of the contracts".

    一个球员如果可以一场比赛在半场就拿下17分不算本事,但是一直两场、三场、四场……N场比赛都在半场就拿下17分,那就说明这个球员确实是很有水准!嘴哥最近的比赛其实是有点把柚姐给打服了的意思,没别的就四个字:高效、稳定!首先在勇士的整个范围来看,能无差别得分的只有三个人:库里、嘴哥和普尔!库里就不谈了,毕竟MVP!普尔是什么?是抽风型球员,顺起来了谁都不好使,铁起来了谁都不认。而嘴哥则是最为特殊的一个:稳定!文好长呀,我喜欢
