Britain approves the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine to prevent Corona

 Britain approves the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine to prevent Corona

The British Medicines and Medical Products Regulatory Authority has approved the use of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine against the coronavirus, making the UK the first country to approve a treatment for it.

The British government has requested 100 million doses of this vaccine to vaccinate 50 million people and said it has accepted Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency recommendations for emergency approval.

The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is the second approved anti-coronavirus vaccine by the authorities after the Pfizer-Biontech vaccine. Due to the low cost and ease of producing and storing the vaccine, it is expected to greatly boost the vaccination campaign.

British Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the vaccine is effective against the new coronavirus, but he said the UK will increase restrictions in more areas today (Wednesday).

The minister added, "After approval this morning, I am now completely confident that by spring we will be able to vaccinate a sufficient number of people at risk of infection. We believe that this is the way out of this epidemic."

He said hundreds of thousands of doses would be available in the UK next week.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson described the approval of the vaccine as "a victory for the British flag".

However, approval of this vaccine did not eliminate doubts about his trial data, making it unlikely that the European Union or the United States would approve it so quickly.

Experiments with the Oxford vaccine show that it is not as effective as the Pfizer-Biontech vaccine, 

but it can be stored and transported under normal cooling temperature instead of being stored and transported in extreme cold below minus 70 degrees Celsius. It is very important for countries with less developed health infrastructure .
