AstraZeneca weighs seeking full U.S. approval for COVID-19 shot -WSJ

- AstraZeneca Plc AZN.L may skip asking the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for emergency-use authorization for its COVID-19 vaccine, and instead pursue the more time-intensive application for a full-fledged license to sell the shot, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

Such a step would further delay any rollout of the British drugmaker's shots in the United States, according to the report, which cited people familiar with the matter.
