Inaprubahan na ng Food and Drug Administration ang emergency use authorization (EUA) ng bakunang gawa ng Moderna.
Maaaring ipamahagi at gamitin sa vaccination program ng gobyerno ang bakunang mayroong EUA mula sa FDA.
“After rigorous and thorough review by regulatory and medical experts using the currently available published and unpublished data, FDA is granting an emergency use authorization… for the COVID-19 vaccine Moderna,” ulat ni FDA Director General Eric Domingo.
Umabot lamang umano ng sampung araw bago opisyal na nabigyan ng EUA ang naturang bakuna.
Inaasahang darating na sa Hunyo ang 200,000 doses ng bakunang binili ng gobyerno mula sa Moderna.
Kamakailan, pumirma rin ng tripartite agreement ang gobyerno at pribadong sektor sa Moderna upang makakuha ng 20 milyong doses ng bakuna.
Sa kasalukuyan, pito na ang vaccine manufacturers na nabigyan ng EUA ng bansa kabilang na ang Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca, Sinovac Biotech, Gamaleya Institute, Janssen, at Bharat Biotech.
