Pfizer seeks emergency nod to use Covid-19 vaccine by December

Nov 20, 2020 07:38 IST

Drugmaker Pfizer has applied to the US Food and Drug Administration for an emergency-use authorisation that could allow their Covid-19 vaccine to be used in the country next month. This type of authorization is temporary or conditional and is granted in response to an emergency situation such as a pandemic. The pharma giant had earlier this week announced that its Covid-19 vaccine is 95% effective. Pfizer will manufacture the vaccine at three sites in the U.S. and two in Europe and expects to produce enough to reach 25 million people by the end of the year.
