The United Kingdom on Wednesday became the first Western country to approve a COVID-19 vaccine, paving the way for US company Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech to begin rolling out their product in the coming days.

After license approval from the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA), the vaccine will be made available across the UK from next week, the British Ministry of Health said in a statement. EFE-EPA
