NEW VACCINE DELIVERIES EXPECTED ON MONDAY
Some 7.9 million additional vaccines against Covid-19, including 5.9 million doses from the Moderna laboratory, will be delivered to the United States from Monday, a government official announced on Sunday. Chief advisor of the “Warp Speed” program, set up by the US government to develop and deliver vaccines against the coronavirus, Moncef Slaoui has counted on the first injections of the Moderna vaccine on Monday morning.
The American Medicines Agency (FDA) announced late Friday that it had granted this American laboratory an emergency authorization, a week after having done the same with that of Pfizer and BioNTech. Since the FDA granted Pfizer / BioNTech emergency clearance, some 2.9 million doses have been delivered in a week, according to General Gus Perna, operational manager of Operation Warp Speed.
