How the United Kingdom will get Pfizer's Covid vaccine from factory to patient

  • Coronavirus: UK approves Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, to roll out next week

Dr Fauci said the point he had been trying to make was that in the U.S. context, with widespread vaccine scepticism, it would not have been appropriate to conduct the process in the same way and at the same speed as what happened in Britain. "I do have great faith in both the scientific community and the regulatory community in the UK", Dr Fauci said.

The announcement came hours after Britain became the first Western nation to approve a coronavirus vaccine for general use, granting authorization to Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech.

But Pfizer executives said Wednesday that they had already heard from other countries that, in light of Britain's go-ahead, were looking to accelerate their own approval processes. Pfizer directs that the thermal shipping boxes shouldn't be opened more than twice a day and for less than a minute at a time.

Dr Fauci told CBS that he agreed with Mr Biden that it was "possible" the United States might see an additional 250,000 deaths by January. "I did not mean to imply any sloppiness even though it came out that way".

The opening of the sites follows the approval of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine by the UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.

On Thursday, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said an initial batch of 800,000 doses will be administered starting next week, and that it was "not unreasonable" to expect 5 million by year-end - suggesting the United Kingdom has already lowered its expectations of how much Pfizer can deliver this year.

On Thursday, the UK's deputy chief medical officer Prof Jonathan Van-Tam told the BBC he was "very confident" in the MHRA. If the vaccines are approved, he said the group still estimates the first shipment of the vaccine would have around 60,000 doses, but that the state could get as many as 400,000 doses in the first month.

And UK Education Secretary Gavin Williamson attributed the UK's expedited process to the regulator's "brilliant clinicians".

The Latin American nation has reported nearly 107,000 Covid-19 deaths - one of the world's highest tolls - and more than 1.1 million infections.

Additionally, a record 8,500 people are in hospitals, including more than 2,000 in intensive care units. California on Wednesday reported more than 20,000 new coronavirus cases, the most ever in one day.

Adding to the distribution challenges, the Pfizer vaccine must be stored at ultra-cold temperatures. Moderna has a meeting the week after regarding an emergency request for its vaccine candidate.

US regulators, despite months of pressure from Trump, have maintained that they will follow their plan and review Pfizer's vaccine to the FDA's standards.

"That's all", he said.

In the latest trial of this vaccine, 162 people injected with a placebo contracted the virus, while only eight injected with the vaccine contracted it.

Minister of Health Patty Hajdu said Health Canada regulators are continuing to review the data of two potential vaccines and decisions are expected soon. "But they just took the data from the Pfizer company and instead of scrutinizing it really, really carefully [t] hey said, 'OK, let's approve it". With much of England still under strict restrictions following a "circuit breaker" lockdown in November, Smeeth suggests it's likely more restrictions will be necessary in early 2021 to contain viral spread until enough people are immunized.

The head of the European Medicine's agency also appeared to raise eyebrows yesterday at the truncated timetable in London.

"My staff have been told to put away their swimsuits and towels and to work as quickly as we can but also in significant depth", Skerritt told reporters in Canberra.

Meanwhile, as the US government continues prepping to change administrations, Fauci said he plans to have a "substantive" conversation with the incoming Biden team, CBS News reports.
