The Court of Appeals in the Philippines said on Friday that it would allow the journalist Maria Ressa to travel to Norway to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, after the government tried to block her from attending the ceremony. Ms. Ressa’s lawyer, Ted Te, filed the appeal last month for his client after the Philippines’ solicitor general said the journalist could not travel to Norway. The government called her a flight risk because her “recurring criticisms of the Philippine legal processes in the international community reveal her lack of respect for the judicial system.”Ms. Ressa was awarded the peace prize in October along with Dmitri A. Muratov, a Russian investigative journalist, for “their courageous fight for freedom of expression.”Ms. Ressa, the first Nobel laureate from the Philippines, is the chief executive officer of Rappler, a digital news organization that is well known for its investigations on disinformation and of President Rodrigo Duterte’s brutal five-year drug war. She is an outspoken critic of Mr. Duterte, whose government has filed seven criminal charges against her, including cyberlibel and tax evasion.

In a comparison of seven different vaccine brands, British researchers found that most of them prompted a strong immune response, with the mRNA shots from Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech eliciting the largest responses. The study was published on Thursday in The Lancet. “These are welcome data for policymakers,” said Merryn Voysey, a statistician at the University of Oxford who was not involved in the study.
