Plenty of news regarding COVID-19 vaccines this week: on the one hand, today EMA announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has started a rolling review of Sputnik V (Gam-COVID-VAC) COVID-19 Vaccine. On the other hand, EMA also notified that the CHMP will hold an extraordinary meeting on the 11th of March in order to conclude the evaluation of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Janssen-Cilag International N.V. If there is a positive outcome to this meeting, the evaluation process (which started with a rolling review on December 2020 and was followed by the conditional marketing authorisation evaluation on mid-February 2021) would be completed. If this vaccine is authorized, a total of 4 vaccines will be available on the European market, with three more on the way, already under EMA’s evaluation.
