  • According to NVAX, the U.K.’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) decided to fully approve Nuvaxovid based on data from Phase 2 and Phase 3 trials the company conducted for the protein-based shot in countries including the U.S. and U.K.
  • “Full marketing authorization of our prototype COVID-19 vaccine in the U.K. is a stepping stone to enable authorization of updated strains of our vaccine in the future,” CEO John Jacobs remarked.
