  • Sweden has ordered 2.2 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine produced by U.S. firm Novavax, which today won approval for use in the EU.

  • It's the fifth Covid-19 vaccine to be given the green light inside the EU by the European Medicines Agency.

  • The jab, which has been plagued by delays, is said to use a more conventional technology than those used for the other vaccines already in use.
