UK approves AstraZeneca's COVID vaccine

The United Kingdom Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) approved on Wednesday the COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University for emergency supply.

AstraZeneca's vaccine became the second jab against the coronavirus after London's health authorities gave the green light to the vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech in early December.

According to the contract that London has with the vaccine developer, the UK will acquire 100 million doses, enough to inoculate 50 million of its citizens.
