AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for emergency supply in the United Kingdom, with the first doses being released on Wednesday so that vaccinations may begin early in the New Year, the company said in a statement Wednesday.
The authorization in the U.K. is significant for India, as the Pune-based Serum Institute of India (SII) has tied up with AstraZeneca to deploy the vaccine in India.
