UK regulator: Pfizer vaccine approval thorough

The United Kingdom Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) conducted a regulatory approval of Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine "without compromising the thoroughness" of the review, a spokesperson for the agency said in a statement.

According to the spokesperson, the country's regulator reviewed all data provided by the US biopharmaceutical company and "rigorously assessed" it as fast as possible.

Previously, Director of the United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the "swift" approval in the UK was done "much less deep" compared to the US, adding "if you go quickly and you do it superficially, people are not going to want to get vaccinated."
