Novavax (NASDAQ:NVAX) stock is in the spotlight on Friday as investors react to recent news concerning its Covid-19 vaccine.

First off, Novavax finally got the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its Covid-19 vaccine that it’s been seeking for so long. This allows for the use of the vaccine in American adults.

Unfortunately for NVAX stock, that announcement also came alongside bad news from across the sea. The European Union’s European Medicines Agency (EMA) listed a “severe allergic reactions” warning as a possible side effect of the vaccine.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the EMA listed another potential side effect for Novavax’s Covid-19 vaccine. That covers “unusual or decreased feeling in the skin.” All in all, this pulled NVAX shares down from a rally early this morning.

Now the real question investors have is if NVAX stock is still worth buying. Let’s check out the latest analysts’ opinions on that below!
