Kuwait authorizes emergency use of Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine

Kuwait Ministry of Health authorized Sunday the emergency use of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine against Covid-19, a ministry official announced.

A joint committee of the medicine registration and supervision department and the public health department for the evaluation and registration of vaccines, has approved emergency use of the vaccine, Dr. Abdullah Al-Bader, Assistant Undersecretary for Pharmaceutical and Food Supervision, said in a statement.

He said the committee's decision followed a thorough review of the safety and quality specifications of the vaccine.

The committee, said Al-Bader, also reviewed results of clinical trials.

Al-Bader emphasized that MoH would closely follow the safety of the vaccine following its use to ensure wellbeing of the public.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued yesterday the first emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
