European Medicines Agency Moves Vaccine Approval Meeting to 21st December!


The European Medicines Agency has moved forward the target date for the COVID-19 Vaccine approval by just over a week, to the 21st December.

This means that should the vaccine be approved, it would mean that the European Union would have a COVID-19 vaccine before Christmas, and through the agreement in place between the EU Commission and Pfizer/BioNtech, the first European citizens, including Maltese, will start getting the vaccine in the last days of 2020 and in January.

As was confirmed by DPM Chris Fearne some days ago, Malta has enough doses ordered to vaccinate the entire population.
