Sweden can buy Russian vaccine even without EU approval

Published 23 February 2021 at 07.20

As far as Bergström is aware, the Russians have so far not even submitted an application to the European Medicines Agency EMA.

– On the other hand, we have been contacted informally and been told that they can come up with a contract proposal in the coming days, he says to DI.

But according to the vaccine coordinator, it is not a requirement that EMA has approved an application for Sweden to start using the vaccine. A plan is enough, he tells DI.

– On the other hand, it is the case that we will not sit down and negotiate contracts if we are not convinced that we have a plan that includes a European approval.

Sweden began to open the door to the Russian vaccine when a study published in the prestigious medical journal the Lancet showed excellent results for Sputnik V.
