Britain orders 60 million Pfizer COVID-19 shots for booster programme science-y stuff
"We'll get an idea then of which gives you the highest boost, which perhaps gives you the broadest boost against a range of coronavirus variants, and indeed what the timings look like," he told a press conference.

"That is another reason why the vaccines taskforce has invested in contracts with not just one or two manufacturers, but six or seven so that we have that optionality."
Britain, which has a population of 67 million, has deals for 517 million doses of eight different COVID-19 vaccines, some of which remain under development.

Blood clots as prevalent with Pfizer and Moderna vaccine as with AstraZeneca's: study, 15 April
According to the study, 4 in 1 million people experience cerebral venous thrombosis after getting the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, versus 5 in 1 million people for the AstraZeneca vaccine. The risk of getting CVT is much higher for those who get COVID-19 -- 39 in a million patients -- than it is for those who get vaccinated.
CVT statistical analysis, January 20, 2020 and March 25, 2021
cohorts:  Pfizer BNT162b2, Moderna mRNA-1273 (N=489,871); AstraZeneca ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 (N=34M), Janssen Ad26.COV2-S (N=N/A)
controls: influenza (N=172,742), COVID-19 (N=513,284)
The risk of being diagnosed with a CVT was significantly higher in the two weeks after COVID-19 compared to influenza or after receiving an mRNA vaccine. The  risk associated  with  COVID-19 was  also  higher than:(a) that currently reported by the EMA following vaccination with the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine;(b) the overall incidence observed inthe TriNetX network or (c) the historical incidence of CVT in the USA.
