"EMA's human medicines committee (CHMP) has recommended updating the product information for Comirnaty to clarify that each vial contains six doses of the vaccine", EMA said.

The vaccination output has likely increased in recent weeks as states expand the availability of the drugs to more people. The bloc also has committed to buying 300 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. One user offered supposed Moderna Inc vaccines for $180, and claimed the vaccine from Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE could be had for $150 and AstraZeneca's for $110 per vial.

To extract the sixth dose from a single vial, low dead volume syringes or needles, which only retain a low amount of solution after an injection, should be used, EMA said, adding that there should be no pooling from multiple vials to make up a full dose. Most states initially reserved the vaccines for healthcare workers and people in nursing homes; some states have now opened vaccinations to all older people.

COVID-19 vaccine scams are on the rise, according to European and USA government officials who are warning the public of fraudsters out for money and personal data.

Actual COVID-19 vaccines, particularly the Pfizer/BioNTech offering, must be temperature controlled to remain effective, with drugmakers equipping shipments with temperature trackers to ensure the cold chain. Biden said. "I haven't gotten an answer from the parliamentarian yet."Later on Monday, The Washington Post reported that Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, was considering whether to use a rare authority granted after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to reconvene the Senate during an emergency, according to a congressional aide.The Senate has been in recess since it finished certifying the Electoral College vote last week".

United Kingdom health regulators may grant emergency use authorization to Moderna Inc's COVID-19 vaccine as soon as Friday, making it the third vaccine to receive approval in the country, Bloomberg News reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The company was working to invest and hire in order to deliver up to 1 billion doses this year.

Both Moderna's and Pfizer-BioNTech's shots are mRNA vaccines, made with a groundbreaking new technology. "This means we have more vaccine available in the European Union and can fight the pandemic faster".
