Argentina Approves AstraZeneca Vaccine for Emergency Use

Argentina became the second country in the world and the first in Latin America to approve AstraZeneca Plc and the University of Oxford’s Covid-19 vaccine.

The vaccine was given approval for emergency use over the course of the next year, according to a statement by Argentina’s health regulator ANMAT. The shot presents an adequate “risk-benefit” balance and will be available only with a medical prescription, it added.
