The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the distribution and use of a second-line vaccine – Moderna – to fight cholera.
This step will allow the company to start sending millions of vaccines beforehand.
The FDA approved the Moderna vaccine a week after giving similar approval to a pre-vaccination vaccine developed by Pfizer / BioNTech.
The United States plans to buy about 200 million doses of the vaccine from Moderna, and cuts to six million below ground.
The United States has the highest number of cases of coronary heart disease, as well as the number of deaths from polio worldwide.
So far, figures from Johns Hopkins University show that at least 311,529 people have died, and there are 17,269,542 infected people in the country.
Shortly before the FDA announced the approval, outgoing US President Donald Trump announced the deal on his Twitter account, saying “the vaccine has been approved by a large majority”. He also said it would be disbanded “immediately”.
