The EU could soon get another vacccine in support of the ongoing combat against coronavirus pandemic. Previously, in late December, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved the use of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine; and now, the time could be right for Moderna, too.

"The EU agency in charge of the evaluation of medicinal products has sped up usual authorization procedures. It has come under pressure from European countries that are in need of more vaccine doses. If the authority gives the green light, the EU Commission will then grant formal approval. The EMA announced the start of a meeting in a tweet on Wednesday", reads the DW story.

The EMA convened a session on January 6 to decide whether to approve the vaccine for use.

The current number of countries where the vaccination campaign started already exceeds 30. People from high-risk groups are getting inoculated. This is mentioned in the WHO report. Last week, the Organization published its first list of use of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in emergency situations.

"Yesterday, it was delightful to see the beginning of the implementation of Astra-Zeneca vaccine in the first country. A year after the WHO released its first report on the outbreaks of diseases, devoted to this virus, more than 30 countries started vaccination of its groups of high risk with various vaccines against Covid-19", reads the message.
