FDA Grants Full Approval to Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine full approval on August 23.

The two other available COVID-19 vaccines from Johnson & Johnson and Moderna are still authorized under the FDA’s EUA designation. Click here to read more.
