AMSTERDAM — The European Commission on

Tuesday said it had signed a deal with Danish biotech firm

Bavarian Nordic for the delivery of around 110,000

doses of monkeypox vaccine.

The agreement marks the first time that the EU budget is used

for the direct purchase of vaccines and would make the shots

rapidly available to all EU member states, Norway and Iceland,

the commission said.

Around 900 cases of monkeypox have been reported in 19 EU

countries, Norway and Iceland since May 18.
