Brazil may have a COVID-19 vaccine ready for use by June 2021

Brazil will probably have a COVID-19 vaccine approved and ready for use by June 2021, as the head of the country’s health regulator (Anvisa), Antonio Barra Torres, told Reuters.

Torres said that Anvisa has not decided on the minimum efficacy to require but he said the agency has approved vaccines in the past with less than 50% effectiveness.
