EU Valneva . Authorized COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by

LONDON ( Associated Press) – The European Medicines Agency (EMA) announced on Thursday that it has recommended authorization of a COVID-19 vaccine made by French drugmaker Valneva, making it the sixth vaccine to be produced in Europe. The green light has been given.

The drug regulatory agency said in a statement that it had licensed a two-dose vaccine of Valneva for people between the ages of 18 and 50. The main study used to evaluate Valneva vaccine was an investigation of about 3,000 people aged 30 years and older. Scientists compared it to AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine.

Those results showed that the Valneva vaccine triggered the production of higher levels of antibodies than the AstraZeneca vaccine. “The vaccine (Valneva) is as effective in triggering antibody production in people aged 18-29 as it is in people aged 30 years and older,” the EMA said.

Still, the EMA said there was limited data about how effective Valneva’s vaccine might be against the Omicron version of the coronavirus and its subtypes, which are currently causing a surge in cases across Europe. The EMA states that side effects from Valneva injections are mostly mild, including pain, nausea, and fatigue.

The Vallneva vaccine is made using the same technology used for the flu and polio vaccines. It uses a dead version of the COVID-19 virus, which prompts the body to make antibodies against it. Vaccines also contain adjuvants, which are ingredients to stimulate an immune response.

Last year, the British government canceled a deal to buy 100 million doses of Valneva, according to the health secretary, after it was clear the company’s vaccine would not be approved by British regulators.
