FDA Approves Pfizer Vaccine for COVID-19

On August 23, 2021, the FDA granted full approval to the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for people age 16 and older– further proving that the vaccine is safe and effective. More than 204 million of the Pfizer shots have already been administered, according to data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“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 confident that this vaccine meets the FDA’s gold standard for safety, effectiveness and manufacturing quality that we require for an approved product,” said FDA Acting Commissioner, Dr. Janet Woodcock.
