In the most optimal scenario, the vaccine will appear on the European market at the end of this year or early next.
The coronavirus vaccine is expected to go on sale in the European market in late 2020 — early 2021. This scenario is considered positive in the EU. This was at a briefing on Wednesday, November 11, said the European Commissioner for Health Stella Kyriakides.
The vaccine will go on sale as soon as clinical trials are completed, she said.
“The end of 2020 — the beginning of 2021. Yes, I think this is a possible positive timing. Today you see that the whole planet is following the development of this vaccine, we are closely following all clinical trials, this is the first time this is happening. I am trying not to give specific dates. “, — said Kyriakides, noting that she considers a positive scenario possible.
Recall that the European Commission had previously warned that there will not be enough vaccines for all EU residents in 2021.
The day before, the WHO said that they have high hopes for the Pfizer COVID vaccine, which has shown more than 90% effectiveness.
