Astrazeneca Files For Vaccine Approval: European Union Medicines Agency

AstraZeneca and Oxford University have applied for authorisation for their coronavirus vaccine in the European Union with a decision possible by January 29, The European Medicines Agency said on Tuesday.

The jab would be the third available for the 27-nation EU after the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna drugs, as the bloc struggles to speed up the rollout.

“EMA has received an application for conditional marketing authorisation for a COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University,” the Amsterdam-based regulator said in a statement.

The EMA said its assessment would “proceed under an accelerated timeline”.
