Moderna’s vaccine appeared set to receive regulatory authorization as early as Friday in the United States after a panel of outside advisers to the Food and Drug Administration endorsed its use with a 20-0 vote and one abstention that the vaccine’s benefits outweighed its risks.
The European Union has supply deals with other vaccine makers, including for up to 300 million doses of Pfizer Inc and Biontech’s shot.
