The European Union’s medicines agency has given approval to Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine.
The decision Wednesday gives the 27-nation bloc a second vaccine to use against the coronavirus rampaging across the continent. The approval recommendation by the European Medicines Agency’s human medicines committee, which must be OK’d by the EU’s executive commission, comes amid high rates of infections in many EU countries.
There’s also been strong criticism of the slow pace of vaccinations across the region of some 450 million people.
