Coronavirus: UK approves Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and will roll out early next week

Britain has become the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for use and says that it will be rolled out from early next week.

“The Government has today accepted the recommendation from the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to approve Pfizer- BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine for use,” the UK Government said on Wednesday.

“The vaccine will be made available across the UK from next week.”

Pfizer said Britain’s emergency use authorisation marks a historic moment in the fight against COVID-19.

“This authorisation is a goal we have been working toward since we first declared that science will win, and we applaud the MHRA for their ability to conduct a careful assessment and take timely action to help protect the people of the U.K.,” said CEO Albert Bourla.

“As we anticipate further authorisations and approvals, we are focused on moving with the same level of urgency to safely supply a high-quality vaccine around the world.”

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the program would begin early next week. Hospitals, he said, were already ready to receive it.

“It is very good news,” Hancock said.
