Novavax Nears Rollout Following EMA Pharmaceutical Approval

Berlin, Germany — (SBWIRE) — 01/28/2022 — Back in December last year, Novavax secured another major step forward in terms of expanding the reach of its COVID-19 vaccine. The Novavax shot Nuxavoid was given a recommendation for conditional marketing authorisation in the European Union by the European Medicines Agency, which came just a few days after it had received emergency use listing from the WHO. Before this point, the vaccine had already received world-first authorisation in Indonesia. Now that the recommendation has been received, the conditional marketing authorisation is expected imminently – when it arrives, Nuxavoid will be the first protein-based COVID vaccine that is available in Europe. Novavax vaccines should be available in the EU during the first quarter of 2022. This is the result of an advance purchase agreement between Novavax and the European Commission for up to 200 million doses of the vaccine. Phase 3 trials revealed that the vaccine was able to reduce the risk of moderate-to-severe COVID by 100%.
