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".

      考虑了上述因素之后,再研判一下你未来几十年的收入走势,从而回答“是否应提前还房贷”。通货膨胀不利于固定收入群体,但对于变动收入群体来说,他们的货币收入通常会走在价格水平、生活费用上涨之前。因此,如果未来的收入将逐年增加、且增幅较大,不提前还款或许是一个更好的选择,而固定收入群体则反之。被邀请来的
