Britain announced that it has approved the Oxford Corona Virus Vaccine. An expert committee related to this (SEC) is meeting at 2 pm on Wednesday to discuss the Emergency Use Authority (EUA) of the vaccine. The application of Serum Institute of India in E, will be considered by the committee.
The British Ministry of Health said, ‘The government today accepted the recommendation of the Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to authorize the COVID-19 vaccine from Oxford University / AstraZeneca.’
What did the experts say on the approval of the Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaccine?The vaccine was being evaluated after MHRA presented the data by the government last Monday. Professor Kalam Semple, a respiratory specialist and a member of the scientific advisory group set up by the government’s emergency system, said, ‘The vaccine will be protected from the virus in a few weeks and it is very important.’ Four million doses are expected to be received by the end of March.
AstraZeneca head Pascal Soriot has asserted that researchers have achieved an ‘effective formula’ by using two doses of the vaccine before publishing the final results. He hoped that the virus would be more effective than earlier estimates and that it should also be effective on the new type of corona virus, causing fear in most parts of Britain.
