Fiocruz Brasil is delaying registration of the AstraZeneca vaccine pending fast track approval | Instant News


RIO DE JANEIRO, 14 Jan (Reuters) – Brazil’s biomedical center Fiocruz has re-submitted its request to register the COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca PLC until next week, said its vice president Marco Krieger.

Fiocruz originally planned to make a request on Friday, but Krieger said it was best to wait for an emergency authorization request that Anvisa’s health regulator hopes will provide on Sunday.

Fiocruz Brasil said AstraZeneca’s vaccine ingredients may be delayed by several weeks | Instant News


RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan 8 (Reuters) – Materials needed to fill and finish millions of doses of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine in Brazil, previously scheduled to arrive in the country on Saturday, may not arrive until the end of the month, local partners said on Friday.

The federally funded biomedical center Fiocruz, which is calculating Saturday’s shipment to supply the government with doses this month, said it was in talks to import more doses of the finished vaccine, possibly from India. (Reporting by Pedro Fonseca; Editing by Leslie Adler)
