Brussels will approve a deal for 160 million doses of US firm Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine, head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said on Tuesday.

Von der Leyen also noted that the Commission had clinched contracts for vaccines from six companies and that immunizations would likely start in late December.

While the agreement secures 80 million doses upfront, an added option was granted allowing the Commission to purchase an additional 80 million vaccines.

On Tuesday, Brussels said it would sign a contract for up to 160 million doses of the experimental coronavirus vaccine developed by Moderna, which the company says appears to be 94.5 percent effective, according to its preliminary data. "Once the vaccine is indeed proven as safe and effective, every member state will receive it at the same time on a pro rata basis", von der Leyen said.

"Member states must get ready now". We're talking about organizing vaccination centers. "You name it. All this has to be prepared", she warned.

"The pandemic situation remains serious", von der Leyen told the European Parliament.

And she said that on the divisive issues of fisheries, governance of any deal and the standards the United Kingdom must meet to export into the EU, the bloc is "ready to be creative, but we are not ready to put into question the integrity of the single market, the main safeguard for European prosperity and wealth".

But von der Leyen told European Union lawmakers: "We must learn from the summer and not repeat the same mistakes, relaxing too fast". Relaxing restrictions "too much and too fast" could lead to a third wave after Christmas, the European Commission president warned, calling on the EU to "learn from the summer".
