EU approves Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine




The EU formally approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Monday after it was given the green light as safe by the Medicines Agency, the bloc’s regulator.

“Based on this scientific assessment, we proceeded to authorise it for the Union market,” EU chief Ursula von der Leyen said in a video statement.

“As we have promised, this vaccine will be available for EU countries at the same time on the same conditions,” she said, adding that the rollout would begin on December 27.
