MODERNA VACCINE MOVES CLOSER TO US APPROVAL

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to follow the recommendation, which means the Moderna vaccine could start being administered in the US as early as next week.

The vote came days after the country began its rollout of the Pfizer-BioNTech jab.

The US has recorded more Covid-19 cases and deaths than any other country.

Earlier this week, its coronavirus death toll passed 300,000.

The advisory panel on Thursday voted 20-0 with one abstention that the benefits of the Moderna vaccine outweigh the risks for those aged 18 and over.

The same committee last week backed the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, leading to its authorisation for emergency use the following day.
