The Biden administration purchased an additional 200 million doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine to prepare for potential additional vaccine needs in the US, an administration official familiar with the contract tells CNN.

Despite the slowing demand for Covid-19 vaccines, the administration official said the additional shots would be needed for children under 12, pending approval from the US Food and Drug Administration, and the possibility of booster shots for vaccinated individuals.

“The federal government is exercising an option in its contract with Pfizer to purchase 200 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine to be delivered between fall 2021 and spring 2022 to prepare for future vaccination needs, including vaccines for children under 12 and possible booster shots if studies show they are necessary,” the official said.
