December vaccine rollout possible
BioNTech co-founder Ugur Sahin said the frontrunner coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine his German firm is developing with Pfizer could be rolled out before the year is over in the United States or Europe, according to a report by Agence France Presse.
"We are working at full speed," he told AFP in a Zoom interview, confirming that the companies plan to apply for emergency use authorisation of their jab in the US on Friday, while European regulators will receive another batch of data "next week".
"There is a chance that we can receive approval from the US or Europe or both regions this year still," said Sahin. "We may even start delivering the vaccine in December," he added, "if everyone works together very closely".
