Feb 27 (Reuters) - A single-shot vaccine to combat COVID-19 in Britain could be weeks away, with regulators set to begin the approval process this week, The Telegraph reported https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/02/27/exclusive-single-shot-covid-vaccine-could-weeks-away-regulators.
A senior government source said the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) formal process was "very likely" to start this week, according to the report.
The jab, developed by Johnson & Johnson's vaccine division Janssen, was not yet being considered by the MHRA for formal approval, the report added, citing health sources. (Reporting by Maria Ponnezhath in Bengaluru; Editing by Leslie Adler)
