When medicines are under rolling review, EMA’s human medicines committee (CHMP) evaluates clinical trial data as soon as these become available until it decides there is enough evidence for the developer to apply for marketing authorisation.

EMA cannot provide exact timelines as these depend on when developers provide the necessary data for CHMP review.

Information on COVID-19 vaccines that are no longer under rolling review following withdrawal from the process is available at COVID-19 vaccines under evaluation: Withdrawn from rolling review.

Once authorised, COVID-19 vaccines can be adapted to provide better protectin against a specific variant or variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

EMA is not involved in advising on travel requirements in the European Union (EU), such as vaccination, quarantine or testing for travellers. 

Decisions about which COVID-19 vaccines are included, for example, in the EU Digital COVID Certificate, are taken by the EU Member States. EMA is in charge of the scientific evaluation of vaccines for EU marketing authorisation. The acceptability criteria for travel purposes are broader and can include, for example, World Health Organization (WHO) listed vaccines that have not necessarily undergone the EMA process of authorisation.
