When the first five jabs haven't worked....authorise a sixth!
A Covid-19 vaccine developed by Valneva has been given regulatory approval by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
The UK had been due to receive 100 million doses of the French firm’s jab, but the Government cancelled the deal in September due to a “breach of obligations”.
The independent medicines regulator is the first in the world to approve the Valneva product, MHRA said in a statement.
The jab developed by the firm, which has a factory in Livingston near Edinburgh, is the sixth Covid-19 vaccine to be granted an MHRA authorisation.
It comes as the number of deaths involving coronavirus registered each week in England and Wales apparently continues to rise - despite a high uptake on the current vaccines available!
