FDA Approves Pfizer's Coronavirus Vaccine


The New York Times wrote:

The Food and Drug Administration authorized Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use on Friday, according to three people with knowledge of the decision who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it. The action means millions of highly vulnerable people will begin receiving the vaccine within days.

The Washington Post also confirmed the news that the FDA has approved the vaccine. The Post wrote:

The Food and Drug Administration on Friday gave emergency use authorization to the nation's first coronavirus vaccine, launching what scientists hope will be a critical counteroffensive against a pathogen that has killed more than 290,000 Americans, shredded the nation's social and political fabric and devastated the economy.
