WHO greenlights Chinese COVID-19 vaccine

The World Health Organization on Friday announced it granted emergency use listing to Beijing’s COVID-19 vaccine, Sinopharm, marking the sixth vaccine in the world health agency’s arsenal.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO director-general, said the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) recommended the jab for use in all adults aged 18 and older on a two-dose regimen. The vaccine will be added to the agency’s co-led COVAX initiative in an effort to provide vaccines to low- and moderate-income countries worldwide.
