Pfizer ships first batch of coronavirus vaccine to Europe

U.S. pharmaceutical company Pfizer on Wednesday, December 23, shipped the first batch of a vaccine against coronavirus COVID-19, developed in collaboration with German BioNTech, to the European Union.

This was reported by Medical Xpress.

Three trucks carrying freezers left the company’s plant in northeastern Belgium, near Antwerp — each accompanied by two police cars.

Pfizer declined to say which countries the first shipments were going to.

Recall that the European Commission officially gave permission to use the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in the European Union after the European Medicines Agency recommended its approval.
