Brazil signs Pfizer deal for 100 mln vaccine doses -source

- Brazil has signed a deal with Pfizer Inc PFE.N 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. nL1N2L615G
