Extended shelf-life for Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine

The MHRA has agreed to extend the time which an undiluted Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine vial can be stored within a normal fridge before use.  The vaccine vials can now be stored for 31 days at normal pharmacy fridge temperatures of 2°C to 8°C, previously they could only be stored for 5 days in a fridge.  These changes will make storing vaccines at designated sites and pharmacies a lot easier and more accessible for eligible cohorts.
