The United Kingdom Approved Second COVID-19 Vaccine

Dublin, Jan. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ResearchAndMarkets.com published a new article on the COVID-19 vaccine industry "The United Kingdom Approved Second COVID-19 Vaccine"

The United Kingdom has approved another COVID-19 vaccine, weeks after the country became the first to start vaccinating its citizens. The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) authorized Oxford University/AstraZeneca's vaccine, saying it met “strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness.”

The UK National Health Service has already vaccinated hundreds of thousands of patients with the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, and will continue to do so. The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine has a lower efficacy rate of 70 percent - in contrast to the Pfizer/BioNTech rate of 95 percent - but the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is also cheaper and easier to store and transport.

The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine can be stored at refrigerator temperatures, rather than requiring deep-freeze storage, making it the only viable vaccine in many developing countries where deep-freeze technology is not widespread.
