Wave approved for the sixth vaccine against Covid in the United Kingdom Coronavirus

A vaccine against Covid-19, developed by Valneva, has received regulatory approval from the Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The UK’s independent drug regulator is the first in the world to approve Valneva, MHRA reported.

This is the sixth Covid-19 vaccine to be authorized for MHRA.

The approval comes as the number of coronavirus-related deaths recorded each week in England and Wales continues to rise, although levels remain well below those reached during previous waves of the virus.
