FRANKFURT (Reuters) -- Moderna will charge governments between $25 and $37 per dose of its COVID-19 vaccine candidate, depending on the amount ordered, Chief Executive Stephane Bancel told German weekly Welt am Sonntag.

"Our vaccine therefore costs about the same as a flu shot, which is between $10 and $50," he was quoted as saying.
