Public Meeting della European Medicines Agency sui Vaccini COVID


"Public stakeholder meeting: approval, safety monitoring and impact of COVID-19 vaccines in the EU" Meeting della European Medicines Agency (EMA) sull'approvazione, il monitoraggio della sicurezza e l'impatto dei vaccini COVID-19 in Europa ad oggi. Un meeting pubblico per tenersi aggiornati (il meeting si terrà in lingua inglese) sulle ultime novità relative ai vaccini COVID approvati in Europa


EMA is continuing to rapidly evaluate applications for new COVID-19 vaccines, and data from promising vaccine candidates. As a result, several such vaccines have already been authorised for use in the EU.

Having multiple vaccines approved is expected to increase availability and provide more options to different population groups in the EU Member States, hence supporting vaccination campaigns across the Union.

As new coronavirus variants emerge, EMA is also working to address any potential threat derived from the new variants. This includes developing guidance for manufacturers on how to change existing

COVID-19 vaccines to tackle new virus variants. Together with the EU regulatory network, EMA continues to collect and assess data on the vaccines already in use to ensure they remain safe and work as expected. EMA will also continue to be transparent

about its work with COVID-19 vaccines and will provide the public with regular updates.

This third public meeting will provide an update to EU citizens about the continued assessment, approval and safety monitoring of COVID-19 vaccines, as well as their expected impact at community level. This

public event will:

• Give an overview of COVID-19 vaccines approved in the EU and those which are currently under review

• Provide an update of post-authorisation activities, including emerging safety data since EU

authorisation of the first COVID-19 vaccines, and ongoing work to address new variants

• Provide an overview on the expected impact of COVID-19 vaccination on our society

• Update on transparency and publication of clinical data for COVID-19 vaccines

• Allow the public and stakeholders to further inform us of their needs, expectations and any concern
