UK approves Moderna's coronavirus vaccine

Moderna Inc.'s coronavirus vaccine was approved for use on Friday by the United Kingdom's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.

British Secretary of State for Health Matt Hancock welcomed the news, asserting that the vaccine represents "another weapon in our arsenal to tame this awful disease" and will "allow us to accelerate our [inoculation] programme even further once doses become available."

The UK's regulator was the first to approve the Pfizer Inc./BioNTech SA vaccine, as well as the jab developed by the Oxford and AstraZeneca plc.
