The Libyan Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) has given the green light for the use of the imported Coronavirus vaccines: Sputnik V and AstraZeneca, saying in a presser on Tuesday that the tested samples of the vaccines rendered them ready for human use.

The Director of the FDA, Emhemed Al-Gallal, said samples of Sputnik V and AstraZeneca vaccines underwent document control, lab and bacterial tests as well as physiological and chemical ones, including tests on lab mice.

Al-Gallal said the reports after all tests proved the vaccines were ready for human use. This came after the FDA postponed the process of vaccination to carry out the needed sample tests.
