That sounds awfully convenient. I wonder what Pfizer has to say about it. It would have been much more profitable for them to have established this up front.New research has found that the Pfizer vaccine can be stored in a fridge for a month and still be viable, rather than the 5 days previously stated.
"The European Union's drugs regulator has said the Pfizer Covid vaccine can now be stored at fridge temperature for much longer than it previously recommended.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said that once the vaccines thawed, unopened vials could be kept in the fridge for up to a month.
The current limit is just five days.
The increased flexibility is expected to have a significant impact on the vaccine roll-out across the EU."
