On Friday, January 8 2021, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) held a public stakeholder meeting on the assessment, approval, and roll-out of pandemic (COVID-19) vaccines.


During this virtual public meeting, our journal asked the following question:


'How can you find out whether the patients from the placebo group and vaccine group had the same chance of being infected with the virus? If this was taken into account during the study, how exactly was it done?'


In order to find out what answer the EMA experts gave us, you can click on the following link and watch the following segment [01:49 - 01:52]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC5dAk_7dOw


IJEHS would like to thank the EMA for giving others the opportunity to ask their questions regarding the approval of COVID-19 vaccines.
