The public has been told on Wednesday that the first coronary vaccines have arrived in Finland.

Yle has reported that Pfizer Biontech vaccines are awaiting marketing authorization at Hus Apteek.

Hanna Nohynek, chief physician of the Department of Health and Welfare, says this is probably a misunderstanding.

- After all, a pharmaceutical company will not be able to send vaccines until they have a marketing authorization.

Pfizer Biontech does not yet have a marketing authorization in the EU.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) will process the marketing authorization next Monday.

If there is no marketing authorization then, the next deadline is 29 December.

According to Nohynek, from which pharmaceutical factory coron vaccines are delivered to Finland is confidential information.
