Canada Also Approves Pfizer Corona Vaccine

After the United Kingdom, Canada has also approved the corona vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech.

 

According to regulator Health Canada, that vaccine is “safe, effective and of good quality”. The approval allows Canada to start vaccinating in the short term.

Health Canada used an accelerated approval process.

This is very similar to that of the US drug regulator FDA, which is expected to give the vaccine the green light later this week.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is also looking at vaccines from Pfizer and competitor Moderna. Approval for these funds is expected in the European Union this year.
