Modified vaccines were approved for use in the European Union last week, the director of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), Emer Cooke, said when she arrived at an informal meeting of EU health ministers in Prague that the vaccines had already been distributed to some countries.

The first batch of the covid drug Paxlovid also arrived in the Czech Republic

The covid-19 drug Paxlovid will be available in Czech pharmacies within two weeks. Minister of Health Vlastimil Válek from TOP 09 announced this on Twitter, saying that the first batch of the medicine is already in the Czech Republic. Patients will receive the medicine on a prescription and the health insurance company will pay for it. The ministry has been discussing the supply of the drug since the beginning of this year. According to Válk, the purchase was delayed due to the terms of the contract. The Czechia demanded to pay only for the amount of medicine that it actually consumes.
