The World Health Organization is holding a briefing Monday on the coronavirus pandemic after Moderna said it would request emergency clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for its Covid-19 vaccine.

Moderna will be the second drugmaker to seek emergency use from the FDA after Pfizer, another front-runner in the Covid-19 vaccine race, applied for the same authorization on Nov. 20. The announcement means some Americans could get the first doses of Moderna’s two-dose vaccine within a few weeks.

In late October, Moderna said it was in ongoing talks with the WHO-backed COVAX initiative on a tiered pricing proposal for its vaccine, which it’s tentatively calling mRNA-1273.
