The European Medicines Agency called on the 27 European Union countries to use all available vaccines to combat the Corona virus, noting that it is too early to determine the best among these vaccines.
"We are still living in the pandemic and it is very important in this fight against this epidemic that we use all available options," Marco Cavalieri, in charge of the agency's vaccination strategy, was quoted by AFP as saying.
He added that it is up to the European Union countries to decide how to use vaccines in the interest of public health.
The agency recently denied that Cavalieri had suggested abandoning the “AstraZeneca” vaccine, stressing that the latter’s statements were misinterpreted and that it considered that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh its risks.
Cavalieri noted that it is "extremely difficult to determine" which vaccine technology may be the best in the future and that all available vaccines have saved millions of lives.
