Sweden has to pay more for covid vaccine

Charlie Taylor

The EU and thus also Sweden may pay more for covid vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. It reports the newspaper Financial Times, which has read the EU's latest contract with the pharmaceutical giants.

Published: 1 August 2022, 16:10The new price for a dose of Pfiza vaccine is just over SEK 200, compared with the previous price of just under SEK 160. The price for Moderna's vaccine is raised from just over SEK 190 to around SEK 260. Sweden's vaccine coordinator Richard Bergström confirms to Dagens Nyheter that the price has increased in recent contracts, to somewhere between 20 and 25 euros (around SEK 200-260). ”The cost is slightly higher . But you should bear in mind that there are a number of improvements and modifications that are included ", says Richard Bergström to DN. The reason for the price increase is, among other things, that the agreements apply to updated vaccines, which will protect against both current and future virus variants. Astra Zeneca and Janssen initially announced that they did not intend to make a profit on their vaccines, so Pfizer-Biontech and Moderna have a commercial pricing. Rickard Bergström says that he does not see a connection between the price increase and the companies' profit interest.TT
