The Dutch National Medicines Authority announced that the European Medicines Agency was unable to reach a decision on the approval of the American “Moderna” vaccine against Corona.
The Dutch Medicines Regulatory Authority said that approval could take place at the meeting on January 6, noting that it was not clear why a decision was not reached on Monday.
The European Medicines Agency (CHMP) Human Medicines Committee called an unscheduled meeting Monday afternoon to discuss the Moderna vaccine, two days before its originally scheduled meeting for tomorrow, Wednesday.
“This is how it works, of course we were hoping for more, but we knew that it might be impossible to answer all the questions in detail in one meeting,” said Ton de Boer, head of the Dutch Medicines Regulatory Authority.
He added, “I hope there will be a decision on Wednesday … but I do not know.”
