The European Union's drug observers and lawmakers warned against hasty approvals of Covid-19 vaccines on Dec 2, after Britain granted emergency authorization to the experimental Covid-19 shot being developed by Pfizer and BioNTech.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said that its longer procedure to approve vaccines was more appropriate as it was based on more evidence and required more checks. Britain's decision was made under an emergency with ultra-fast approval process.

Under EU rules, the Pfizer vaccine must be authorized by EMA, but EU countries can use an emergency procedure that allows them to distribute in their domestic market a vaccine for temporary use.

A few weeks of a thorough examination by the European Medicines Agency is better than a hasty emergency marketing authorization of a vaccine, said Liese, who represents the center-right grouping.
