Some of the documents state that the quality of the drug was doubted by the EMA. However, some EU representatives continued to insist on the approval of the vaccine.
Particularly, President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen stated about the necessity to approve Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines until the end of the year as an ultimatum as one of the EMA employees cited. It was underlined that ‘there still problems’ with both drugs.
However, the most difficulties appeared with the Pfizer vaccine. Especially after the detected fact of inconsistencies of the drug formula at commercial batches and batches used during clinical trials.
Besides, the absence of the approval of some production platforms and lack of data on commercial batches of the vaccine raised the most concern.
As we reported, Pfizer vaccine apparently causes dozens of cases of side effects - specifically, in the Netherlands. Some patients in the Netherlands claimed allegric reactions, headache, fatigue and pain in the spot where the shot was made. The experts say that side effects during vaccination are quite natural, as the immune system responds after the injection.
