Brazil signs deal to purchase 100 million doses of Pfizer coronavirus vaccine

Empty vials of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines are seen in a vaccination center inside the exhibition palace as part of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination campaign in Nice, France.

Brazil has signed a deal with Pfizer Inc to purchase 100 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said on Monday.

Brazilian officials have flagged their interest in a deal since President Jair Bolsonaro joined Pfizer executives on a video call last week, burying the hatchet after months of recriminations about stalled negotiations.
