FDA expected to approve Moderna vaccine

The FDA announced that it will “rapidly” work to grant emergency use authorization for Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine. The announcement follows an independent review by an FDA advisory panel, which recommended approving the vaccine yesterday. Once approved, Moderna’s vaccine will be the second coronavirus vaccine to receive emergency use authorization in the US. 

Extra: The US government has purchased 200M doses of Moderna’s vaccine, of which 20M will be received by the end of this year.
