Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine gets full federal approval

WASHINGTON (WOWO): One of the coronavirus vaccines now has full approval from the Food and Drug Administration.

Before today, all three versions of the vaccines currently available to the public were being used under emergency authorizations, but federal regulators this morning granted full approval to the Pfizer version of the shots. It’s a move that could help boost vaccination numbers, as critics of the vaccines resisted getting the shots because they had not yet received full approval.

The move was based on a clinical trial of 44,000 people and could also mean more vaccine requirements from workplaces, schools, and entertainment venues.

Read the full authorization here. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are still awaiting full approval.

There are more than 170-million Americans fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

  1. 329M people in the US, 170M people vaccinated, 38M people had the virus. 38+170/329 = 63%….

    what number do we need to get to for herd immunity? What, don’t want to talk about that anymore because of the Variant since the vaccine doesn’t really work on the variant?

    Guess what, this virus will always be around just like the cold (also a coronavirus) and flu, therefore, just like Boris Johnson Said, “we need to learn to live with it”

    I stand by my original statement from 1-1/2 ago… If you are worried, take precautions. Otherwise, live your life and don’t tell me how to live mine…. Life Free…
