United Kingdom first country to roll out Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine

"Everybody can be confident that no corners whatsoever have been cut", said Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) chief executive June Raine.

The Japanese government's top spokesperson said Wednesday the country would work to confirm efficacy and safety of the Pfizer vaccine if an application for approval has been submitted.

The concerns over the coronavirus growth have resurfaced, offsetting the vaccine optimism in Asia.

It may not be too long. The US Food and Drug Administration is set to convene its Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) on December 10 to review emergency approval for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. In Hong Kong, authorities have a practice of greenlighting medications after they are cleared by the U.S. FDA, and this is likely to apply to Pfizer's vaccine.

Over 100,000 people have already been vaccinated with Sputnik V, now in the final stage of clinical trials involving some 40,000 volunteers.

U.K. Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the BBC Wednesday that the U.K. would receive 800,000 doses in its first wave of the program, with the potential for more than that number to be delivered by the end of this year. The first of those doses are expected to arrive in the coming days, the drugmakers said in a joint statement.

In November, NITI Aayog member (Health) V K Paul, who also heads the National Task Force on COVID-19, had said the arrival of the Pfizer vaccine in the country might take some months.

"This will start small and ramp up".

Speaking at a Downing Street news conference, Mr Johnson said the decision to approve the Pfizer jab by regulator MHRA came amid "immense logistical challenges" in getting doses to vulnerable groups.

Medical workers and residents of long-term care facilities will be the first groups to receive COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S., according to an advisory group of outside medical experts that advises the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Russian Federation cleared a vaccine known as Sputnik V in August, while a second inoculation was approved in October even as the last stage of trials to establish safety and efficacy are still taking place.

Governments from all around the world are offering free COVID-19 vaccines to their citizens.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the first people in Scotland will be immunised on Tuesday, while Welsh Health and Social Care Minister Vaughan Gething said the rollout of the Pfizer jab to care homes would be particularly hard. Still to be determined is whether the Pfizer-BioNTech shots protect against people spreading the coronavirus without showing symptoms. British regulators also are considering another shot made by AstraZeneca and Oxford University.

Baker told reporters to expect a similar timeline as Pfizer, Moderna and other vaccine developers announced positive results with clinical trials testing COVID-19 vaccine candidates.

They might not be far behind, though in different countries.

While this isn't full licensing - which ordinarily takes longer to process - the temporary authorization provided by the MHRA allows for an unlicensed vaccine to be used during the pandemic.
