Handle with care = more doses
“It’s great news and the results from yesterday have led to us now planning that we get an extra 6 percent from each vial,” Jonas Egebert, the head of the taskforce, told TV2 News.

The reason for the extra doses is producer Pfizer/BioNTech adding a bit to account for potential spillage. 

And so to attain the excess doses, health personnel must handle the vaccine with care.
