ZURICH, Aug 25 (Reuters) - Switzerland has signed an agreement with Pfizer (PFE.N) to supply 14 million more doses of its COVID-19 vaccine to cover 2022 and 2023, Health Minister Alain Berset said on Wednesday.

"The Swiss government has completed a further contract with Pfizer, which will supply 7 million vaccine doses (in both) 2022 and 2023," Berset told a press conference in Bern.

The contract includes an option for an additional 7 million doses to be supplied to Switzerland each year, Berset said. "With this, the Swiss population will have access to enough vaccine in the coming two years," Berset said.
