German lawmaker blasts UK's 'hasty' Pfizer vaccine approval

Peter Liese (pictured right), German lawmaker and a member of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), criticized a "hasty" emergency approval of the Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine in the United Kingdom by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

"A few weeks of thorough examination by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) is better than a hasty emergency marketing authorisation of a vaccine," Liese stated.

Furthermore, he "considers this decision to be problematic" and urged the European Union member states not to "repeat the process in the same way."
