FDA Approves the Pfizer Vaccine
The FDA’s approval of this vaccine is a milestone as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. The widely anticipated decision replaces the emergency use authorization granted by the agency last December.
While this and other vaccines have met the FDA’s rigorous, scientific standards for emergency use authorization, as the first FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine, the public can be very confident that this vaccine meets the high standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality.

Booster Shots are on Their Way
The Center of Disease Control and Prevention has developed a plan to begin offering booster shots subject to FDA conducting an independent evaluation and determination of the safety and effectiveness of a third dose of the vaccine.
Those with autoimmune diseases, in nursing home residents, and health care workers are the first in get booster shots, followed by other older people who were vaccinated last winter. The booster shot won't be available to the general population until down the road after the Immunocompromised and senior/nursing home patients get it.
