German government orders 554 million COVID-19 doses for its population of just 83 million people

(Natural News) The German government has ordered a total of around 554 million Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine doses in different tranches from the European Union contracts in 2021. In the case of Pfizer doses, the order quantity from the government was around 287.3 million vaccine doses. There have also been around 120.3 million doses from Moderna, 56.3 million doses from AstraZeneca, and 55 million doses from Johnson & Johnson.

Additionally, there were also orders from Sanofi/GSK, Valneva and Novavax. An additional three million Pfizer vaccine doses from Poland were also ordered in early December 2021 and delivered later the same month. If all 83 million of Germany’s population got their vaccinations, the sheer number the government bought would be enough to give each person seven doses. Currently, almost 73 percent of the German population have received their full shots of the vaccine, with over 48 percent already receiving their booster shots.

This bizarre order comes from Health Minister Karl Lauterbach and Finance Minister Christian Lindner, who said that Germany could face vaccine shortages early in 2022 if new doses are not acquired.
