Pfizer vaccines can be stored in normal refrigerators at 2°C to 8°C for 31 days: EMA Updated: 2021-05-18 08:36:38 KST

Europe's drug regulator has extended the storage limit by up to a month of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine in fridges at two to eight degrees Celsius in a bid to boost its rollout.
The European Medicines Agency said Monday that this is only recommended for unopened vials, after further stability data was submitted by Pfizer and BioNTech.
It added the increased flexibility is expected to have a significant impact on planning and logistics for the rollout in the EU.
Initially the EMA had said the vaccine could be kept for up to five days in normal fridges, with super-cool freezers required for long-term storage.
