Mainz, Germany, June 1, 2022 — At the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of BioNTech SE (Nasdaq: BNTX, “BioNTech” or the “Company”) held today, June 1, 2022, shareholders voted to reappoint Helmut Jeggle as a member of the Supervisory Board with a majority of 96.44 per cent. In a meeting following the AGM, the Supervisory Board re-elected Helmut Jeggle as its Chairman. Shareholders also appointed two additional Supervisory Board members, Prof. Dr. Anja Morawietz and Prof. Dr. Rudolf Staudigl with a majority of 99.85 per cent and 99.86 per cent respectively. All three members will serve in their roles until the AGM 2026.
In addition, the shareholders passed the proposal of the Management Board and Supervisory Board and resolved to pay a special cash dividend of €2.00 per ordinary share (including those held in the form of ADSs). This corresponds to approximately €484.2 million, based on the shares outstanding and entitled to dividends as of May 30, 2022, being the record date relevant for determination.
“Over the past two years, BioNTech has developed into a fully integrated biotech company with a diversified clinical pipeline, including several late-staged product candidates. We want our shareholders to participate in our strong 2021 performance via a special cash dividend and a share repurchase program. This is in line with BioNTech’s capital allocation strategy and the company’s commitment to delivering shareholder value,” said Helmut Jeggle, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of BioNTech. “With Prof. Dr. Anja Morawietz and Prof. Dr. Rudolf Staudigl, we are gaining further expertise in finance, governance and international markets, which will complement the existing skillset of the Board. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve this company as Chairman of the Supervisory Board.”

come, we intend to invest especially into our R&D engine and expect to spend for 2022 alone between €1.4 billion and €1.5 billion in our current R&D initiatives. At the same time, we intend to accelerate further growth inorganically, for example with synergistic acquisitions and in-licensing deals.”
BioNTech’s rapid growth in the past financial year has significantly increased the workload of its committees. As this is also to be expected for the financial year 2022, the shareholders passed the Management Board and Supervisory Board’s proposal to remunerate committee work separately. An ordinary committee member will receive an additional annual remuneration of €5,000 per committee in the future and committee chairs will be remunerated with €15,000 per year, with the exception of the Audit Committee chair who receives €30,000 per year.

Safety Information 5 COMIRNATY® ▼(the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine) has been granted conditional marketing authorization (CMA) by the European Commission to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in people from 5 years of age. The vaccine is administered as a primary course of 2 doses, 3 weeks apart. In addition, the CMA has been expanded to include a booster dose (third dose) at least 6 months after the second dose in individuals 12 years of age and older. For immunocompromised individuals, a third primary course dose may be given at least 28 days after the second dose. The European Medicines Agency’s (EMA’s) human medicines committee (CHMP) has completed its rigorous evaluation of COMIRNATY®, concluding by consensus that sufficiently robust data on the quality, safety and efficacy of the vaccine are now available. IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: • Events of anaphylaxis have been reported. Appropriate medical treatment and supervision should always be readily available in case of an anaphylactic reaction following the administration of the vaccine. • There is an increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis following vaccination with Comirnaty. These conditions can develop within just a few days after vaccination, and have primarily occurred within 14 days. They have been observed more often after the second vaccination, and more often in younger males. Available data suggest that the course of myocarditis and pericarditis following vaccination is not different from myocarditis or pericarditis in general. • Anxiety-related reactions, including vasovagal reactions (syncope), hyperventilation or stress‐related reactions (e.g. dizziness, palpitations, increases in heart rate, alterations in blood pressure, paraesthesia, hypoaesthesia and sweating) may occur in association with the vaccination process itself. Stress-related reactions are temporary and resolve on their own. Individuals should be advised to bring symptoms to the attention of the vaccination provider for evaluation. It is important that precautions are in place to avoid injury from fainting. • Vaccination should be postponed in individuals suffering from acute severe febrile illness or acute infection. The presence of a minor infection and/or low-grade fever should not delay vaccination. • As with other intramuscular injections, the vaccine should be given with caution in individuals receiving anticoagulant therapy or those with thrombocytopenia or any coagulation disorder (such as haemophilia) because bleeding or bruising may occur following an intramuscular administration in these individuals. • The efficacy and safety of the vaccine has not been assessed in immunocompromised individuals, including those receiving immunosuppressant therapy. The efficacy of Comirnaty may be lower in immunocompromised individuals. As with any vaccine, vaccination with COMIRNATY® may not protect all vaccine recipients. Individuals may not be fully protected until 7 days after their second dose of vaccine. • In clinical studies, adverse reactions in participants 16 years of age and older were injection site pain (> 80%), fatigue (> 60%), headache (> 50%), myalgia and chills (> 30%), arthralgia (> 20%), pyrexia and injection site swelling (> 10%) and were usually mild or moderate in intensity and resolved within a few days after vaccination. A slightly lower frequency of reactogenicity events was associated with greater age. • The overall safety profile of COMIRNATY® in participants 5 to 15 years of age was similar to that seen in participants 16 years of age and older. • The most frequent adverse reactions in children 5 to 11 years of age were injection site pain (>80%), fatigue (>50%), headache (>30%), injection site redness and swelling (>20%), myalgia and chills (>10%). • The most frequent adverse reactions in clinical trial participants 12 to 15 years of age were injection site pain (> 90%), fatigue and headache (> 70%), myalgia and chills (> 40%), arthralgia and pyrexia (> 20%). • A large amount of observational data from pregnant women vaccinated with Comirnaty during the second and third trimester have not shown an increase in adverse pregnancy outcomes. While data on pregnancy outcomes following vaccination during the first trimester are presently limited, no increased risk for miscarriage has been seen. Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects with respect to pregnancy, embryo/foetal development, parturition or post-natal development. Comirnaty can be used during pregnancy. • No effects on the breast fed newborn/infant are anticipated since the systemic exposure of breast feeding woman to Comirnaty is negligible. Observational data from women who were breast feeding after vaccination have not shown a risk for adverse effects in breast fed newborns/infants. Comirnaty can be used during breast feeding. Interactions with other medicinal products or concomitant administration of COMIRNATY® with other vaccines has not been studied. • For complete information on the safety of COMIRNATY® always make reference to the approved Summary of Product Characteristics and Package Leaflet available in all the languages of the European Union on the EMA website. The black equilateral triangle ▼ denotes that additional monitoring is required to capture any adverse reactions. This will allow quick identification of new safety information. Individuals can help by reporting any side effects they may get. Side effects can be reported to EudraVigilance or directly to BioNTech using email firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone +49 6131 9084 0, or via the website www.biontech.de
Safety Information 6 AUTHORIZED USE IN THE U.S. COMIRNATY® (COVID-19 Vaccine, mRNA) is an FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine for active immunization to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in individuals 16 years of age and older. It is also authorized under EUA to provide a 2-dose primary series to individuals 5 years of age and older, a third primary series dose to individuals 5 years of age and older who have been determined to have certain kinds of immunocompromise, a single booster dose to individuals 12 years of age and older who have completed a primary series with Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine or COMIRNATY®, a single booster dose to individuals 18 years of age and older who have completed primary vaccination with a different authorized COVID-19 vaccine, a second booster dose to individuals 50 years of age and older who have received a first booster dose of any authorized COVID-19 vaccine; and a second booster dose to individuals 12 years of age and older who have been determined to have certain kinds of immunocompromise and who have received a first booster dose of any authorized COVID-19 vaccine. The booster schedule is based on the labeling information of the vaccine used for the primary series. IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION Individuals should not get the vaccine if they: • had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of this vaccine • had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient of this vaccine Individuals should tell the vaccination provider about all of their medical conditions, including if they: • have any allergies • have had myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) or pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart) • have a fever • have a bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinner • are immunocompromised or are on a medicine that affects the immune system • are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding • have received another COVID-19 vaccine • have ever fainted in association with an injection The vaccine may not protect everyone. Side effects reported with the vaccine include: • There is a remote chance that the vaccine could cause a severe allergic reaction • A severe allergic reaction would usually occur within a few minutes to 1 hour after getting a dose of the vaccine. For this reason, vaccination providers may ask individuals to stay at the place where they received the vaccine for monitoring after vaccination • Signs of a severe allergic reaction can include difficulty breathing, swelling of the face and throat, a fast heartbeat, a bad rash all over the body, dizziness, and weakness • If an individual experiences a severe allergic reaction, they should call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest hospital • Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart) have occurred in some people who have received the vaccine, more commonly in males under 40 years of age than among females and older males. In most of these people, symptoms began within a few days following receipt of the second dose of the vaccine. The chance of having this occur is very low. Individuals should seek medical attention right away if they have any of the following symptoms after receiving the vaccine: • chest pain • shortness of breath • feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering, or pounding heart • Additional side effects that have been reported with the vaccine include: • severe allergic reactions; non-severe allergic reactions such as injection site pain; tiredness; headache; muscle pain; chills; joint pain; fever; injection site swelling; injection site redness; nausea; feeling unwell; swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy); decreased appetite; diarrhea; vomiting; arm pain; and fainting in association with injection of the vaccine • These may not be all the possible side effects of the vaccine. Serious and unexpected side effects may occur. The possible side effects of the vaccine are still being studied in clinical trials. Call the vaccination provider or healthcare provider about bothersome side effects or side effects that do not go away Data on administration of this vaccine at the same time as other vaccines have not yet been submitted to FDA. Individuals considering receiving this vaccine with other vaccines should discuss their options with their healthcare provider. Patients should always ask their healthcare providers for medical advice about adverse events. Individuals are encouraged to report negative side effects of vaccines to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Visit https://www.vaers.hhs.gov or call 1‐800‐ 822‐7967. In addition, side effects can be reported to Pfizer Inc. at www.pfizersafetyreporting.com or by calling 1-800-438-1985.
