Saudi Arabia's Food and Drug Authority on Friday approved Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine (MRNA.O) for use in the kingdom, the state news agency (SPA) said.
Moderna is the fourth shot that has been authorised for use in the Kingdom. AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNTech and the Johnson & Johnson are the other vaccines that have been approved for use in the Kingdom.
According to SPA, the decision to approve registration and use of Moderna's vaccine was made based on the data provided by the company.
