AstraZeneca may seek full US approval for vaccine - report

AstraZeneca is mulling applying for a comprehensive approval of its coronavirus vaccine from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) instead of emergency-use authorization, The Wall Street Journal reported citing sources familiar with the matter.

According to the report, the move is more appealing to the company given that the US government has signaled it most likely won't be needing the AstraZeneca-developed jabs.

Last week, the FDA asked the British drugmaker for additional data on its COVID-19 vaccine ahead of the company's application for emergency-use authorization.
