Where will Prince Philip be buried, will he have a state funeral and where are other royals buried? The Duke of Edinburgh may have a low-key ceremony.
International coalition of regulatory authorities agree to fast-track modified Covid-19 vaccines for variants
The ACCESS Consortium, an international coalition of regulatory authorities, has announced it will fast-track the approval of modified Covid-19 vaccines for new variants of the virus, avoiding the normal lengthy approval process.
In an announcement on Thursday, ACCESS Consortium revealed that it will fast-track any modified vaccines if manufacturers “provide robust evidence” to help get doses of effective jabs to the public quickly.
“Our priority is to geteffectivevaccines to the publicin as short atimeaspossible, withoutcompromising on safety,” MHRA’s chief scientific officer, Dr. Christian Schneider, said in a statement.
Addressing potential concerns that a faster regulatory process would impact the safety of the vaccines, the MHRA said that no vaccine would be approved unless it met the “high standards” of “quality and effectiveness” that are required.
